MENLO PARK – Instagram and Facebook users will certainly see something unusual in the timeline of their two favorite social media. Currently on these two social media, Meta, often includes several uploads in Threads.
The problem is that the new policy actually creates new problems. Via the official Threads blog, quoted by MNC Portal Indonesia, Tuesday (24/10/2023), the Threads account named lanes_7_17 felt uncomfortable with the new policy.
“How can I prevent Threads from appearing on Facebook? I want to separate Facebook from Threads. I don’t want suddenly there are Threads or other posts on my Facebook account,” he wrote.
The question was immediately picked up by other Threads users who also felt uncomfortable. “So Threads appear on Facebook’s timeline just for bait. Whether we approve of them or not, I don’t know,” complained the owner of a Threads account with the name celebralclown.
Threads is known to immediately respond to various complaints. They said the policy could still be changed because it was still in the development stage.
“We released the update to make it easier for more people to see the latest Threads content directly from Facebook and Instagram. However, we are open to all complaints because this is still being developed,” wrote Threads.
Meanwhile, The Verge stated that this step was actually taken by Meta to fulfill the ambitions of Meta owner, Mark Zuckerberg. Previously, Mark Zuckerberg had the ambition for Meta to become a successful social media with one billion users.
These hopes are very high because when it was first introduced on July 5 2023, it immediately got 100 million users in a short time. It’s just that after that Threads actually experienced a slowdown.
So it’s not surprising that Meta finally tried to promote Threads through their already established social media, Facebook and Instagram. “Like it or not, we have to get used to seeing Threads on Instagram and Facebook,” said The Verge.
