Threads, the Twitter Killer, is preparing to introduce new features

Meta, the company behind the new social network Threads, responds to user criticism and promises new features to improve the user experience.

Meta, the company formerly known as Facebook, recently launched Threads , its new social network. After a highly successful launch that saw nearly 30 million signups in less than 24 hours , Threads is preparing to introduce new features to address user criticism.

While users seem enthusiastic about the new platform, some feel there are major shortcomings. Among the most common complaints, many criticized the lack of a feature to filter their news feed, while others found the moderation of sexual content too strict.

Instagram CEO, Adam Moss and ri, recently announced on Twitter the introduction of some new features for Threads. These include a feed dedicated to people followed by users, which will only show posts from their friends and not recommendations of posts from people they don’t know. This move should allow users to have more control over what they see in their feed.

Mosseri also announced that Threads will implement hashtags, most likely with a section dedicated to “trending topics” , where users will be able to see the most popular topics of the moment. This should provide yet another tool for users to customize their experience on Threads.

Finally, Mossori confirmed the arrival of a web version of Threads. While the app was a priority for Meta, the company acknowledged that many users prefer to use a computer or simply don’t want to install the app on their smartphones.

The launch of Threads has been a huge success for Meta, but the company is clearly aware that there is still a lot of work to be done in order to gain full user acceptance. These upcoming new features are an important step in that direction. It will be interesting to see how the platform evolves in the coming months and whether it can maintain the interest and excitement generated by its launch.
