Threads- does this term ring a bell? Well, of course, it does! Launched on July 6th by the Instagram team, Threads became the fastest-downloaded app, with over 1 million downloads in just 1.5 hours. It is a new app for sharing text updates and joining public conversations. With a character limit of up to 500 characters, links, photos, and videos up to 5 minutes in length, Threads is taking the world by storm. And if you are on Threads, here are four ways you can make the most of your time on the app.
What Is Threads & How Can You Use It Efficiently?
It is an app designed by the Instagram team to enable positive, productive conversations. You can control mentions, replies, add hidden words to filter out replies to your threads, unfollow, block, restrict or report a profile on Threads. The newly-launched app is a separate space for real-time updates and public conversations. And here’s how you can make the most of your time on this app.
1. Use It For Having Unfiltered Conversations
If you are an influencer, a small-scale brand, a media company or an upcoming entrepreneur, use this platform to communicate with your audience most authentically. DO NOT promote your reels and other posts on this app; instead, have conversations that matter. Educate your audience about certain topics, give them tips on business, ask them suggestions on things you are confused about and be the voice amidst all the chatter.
2. Share BTS Moments On Threads
If you have shot something new or are launching something soon, share a small glimpse of it in the form of BTS with your followers. Show them the hard work it takes to create that one perfect reel or to edit that one perfect video, take them on the behind-the-scenes journey, entertain them, educate and inform them about the hardships one has to face in every job. Ask them questions, check what they want to see, and build a strong community on threads.
3. Showcase Your Hidden Talent
As an individual, if you are good at writing, editing, poetry and various other skills, now is the time to shine and show off your skills on Threads. Share your poetries, stories, blogs and more on the app. Have a detailed discussion on your writing, look for like-minded communities and pages and share your art on the platform. Threads are the perfect platform to share your skills with the world, unlike Instagram and TikTok, which are now more video-based platforms.
4. Tune Out the Noise
The newly-launched app aims to become a positive space for healthy conversations, so ensure you engage with good discussions and refrain from addressing the bad ones. Ask opinions on political, general and other things that matter to you, take suggestions and encourage positive conversations with one another.
Available in 100 countries for iOS and Android, download the app and be a part of the conversation.
