Instagram is one of the most well-known platforms worldwide. The quintessential image-sharing social network boasts more than 1.2 billion active users and has become a fundamental promotional channel for many businesses.

However, it has now decided to take a step further and invest in text-based content with its new app: Threads.

What is Threads?

In July 2023, Mark Zuckerberg announced the launch of the new app Threads, the latest venture from the Meta multinational developed by the Instagram team. Just 7 hours after its release, the app recorded over 10 million users. Following a strong start, the conglomerate of platforms such as Facebook, WhatsApp or Instagram itself seeks to expand and delve into the world of digital content creation through the text format. In Spain, it has been available since December 14, 2023.

According to the platform itself, Threads is an application aimed at sharing text updates and fostering public conversations. In this way, content creators can express their opinion on a topic with their followers and initiate debates through written communication. A new solution for people looking to read and share information on a simple and free platform.

 

How does it work?

The new Meta app functions as a microblogging social network. In other words, users can create text content of up to 500 characters, allowing them to develop a topic in a simple and concise manner.

When exploring other people's posts, Threads allows users, like Instagram, to follow other creators, keeping us informed about what other businesses, experts, and our network of contacts are publishing. Additionally, it features an algorithm similar to Instagram's, which helps discover content from unknown users as long as they discuss a topic of interest to you.

Additionally, you can customize your profile to your liking to make it visible to everyone. Alternatively, you can keep it private so that only your followers can read your content. You can also customize notifications based on whether you want to see all of them or just replies, mentions, or interactions with verified accounts. It's up to you!

What are the advantages of using Threads?

Now that you know how this new app works, it's time for you to understand how you can integrate it into your SME and how it can help expand your presence on digital channels:

  1. Creating content in a new format: with Threads, you'll have the opportunity to make text-based posts, allowing you to engage with your followers in a different way than the usual on Instagram. You can use it to showcase trends or news, express opinions, or share guides or usage tips.

  2. Achieving greater reach with your posts: if you have an Instagram account, you can directly link it to your Threads account. This will enable you to share what you post on both social media platforms with your followers, creating a multichannel experience.

  3. Personalizing conversations with your audience: Threads allows you, in addition to individually responding to your contacts, to create segmentations with specific groups. This feature can help you create different rooms to offer personalized content to your followers based on their interests.

  4. Combining your text with other formats: in addition to microblogging of up to 500 characters, Threads allows you to use other formats such as links, images, or videos. This will enable you to provide more information to your followers, for example, with 5-minute-long videos or redirecting traffic to your website.

  5. Analyzing your metrics: like other social networks, on Threads, you can track the performance of your posts so you can understand what type of content your followers like and where you need to rethink your strategy.
