Meta acknowledged these limitations and assured users that they are actively working to improve the app’s capabilities. According to MetaUpcoming updates will introduce improved recommendations, a robust search function, and real-time tracking of topics and trends.
- Chronological flow: Threads currently uses an algorithmic feed, but it is expected that the option to switch to a chronological feed, similar to the feature recently added to Instagram, will be available in due course.
- Next page : Unlike Instagram, Threads does not provide a complete list of accounts users follow. Currently, users can only see the number of their own followers, but not the accounts they follow or those followed by other users.
- Embedded codes: Currently, Threads does not offer embed codes for posts, only providing a URL for sharing links. This absence limits the integration of Threads content on external websites.
- Account deletion: Notably, Threads does not have the ability to delete a Threads account without affecting the user’s Instagram account. This feature is crucial for users who want to pause Threads while still maintaining their Instagram presence.
As Topics continues to evolve, Meta is committed to addressing these limitations and providing a more complete and user-friendly experience. Over time, Threads is expected to incorporate trending topics, hashtags, editable alt text, and various other features that users have come to expect from social media platforms.
