JAKARTA – Meta facilitates Threads users who don’t want automatic uploads to Facebook and Instagram. Currently, the social media giant has presented the latest features.
Launching Engadget, Wednesday (11/15/2023), this feature will prevent Threads from forwarding uploads to other Meta applications when activated. This update can be enjoyed by all users.
To activate it, users can open the Profile page then select Menu at the top right. After that, click the Privacy option then click the Suggest posts in other applications option to turn off sharing to Instagram and Facebook.
Changing this feature simply prevents uploads from being used in cross-promotion. Users will still see other people’s Threads posts on Instagram and Facebook, regardless of their privacy settings.
The presence of this feature began when a number of Threads users felt annoyed because Meta automatically shared content. Threads are known to have a unique clickbait mechanism to find more users.
Back in October 2023, the company said it would listen to feedback in response to Threads users’ complaints about automatic sharing to the Meta platform.
