Threads, a Twitter-like platform created by Mark Zuckerberg’s Meta Platforms, has added a “Following” tab to its users. This feature allows users to view posts from their followers in a timeline, similar to Twitter’s “For You” feed. The “Following” tab is accessible to users on both iOS and Android versions, but not everyone has access yet. To use the feature, users can click the “home” symbol or the provider’s logo to reveal the “Following” tab.
The “Following” tab gets added to Meta’s Threads: What is it, and how does it work?
Though the feature has begun to pop up on both the iOS and Android versions of Threads. It is not accessible to all yet; more users will expect to gain access over the next few days.
Second update of Threads
It is the second update that Threads, created by Mark Zuckerberg’s Meta Platform. This app got live earlier this month. Threads now have a “Following” tab.
Users can view posts from the people they follow in a timeline because of this feature, just like its namesake Twitter counterpart.
Zuckerberg announced the change on his Instagram broadcast channel, saying, “Threads began to roll out a preference for a sequential manner feed of only those you’re following.”
What does the Threads “Following” tab mean?
Despite whether they followed those people and companies or not, when Threads launched on July 5, users’ feeds (the “For You” feed) were overflowing with posts from users and brands. Now, “Following” will provide them with a chronological feed that only includes posts from people they are already following; there won’t be any “recommended” posts.
The “For You” feature on Twitter, which is now known as “X,” serves the same purpose as the “Threads” feature.
Is ‘Following’ accessible to everyone?
Though the feature has begun to pop up on both the iOS and Android versions of Threads, not everyone has access yet; more users will expect to gain access over the next few days.
How can I use ‘Following’?
The user interface retains ‘For You’ as the standard claims CNET. Thus, an individual clicks on the “home” symbol on the bottom left or the provider’s logo on the top of the display to make the “Following” tab appear or vanish.
If the feed stays the same after you tap the symbol, you are one of the people yet to receive “Following.”
“If you request, you will get.”
It’s interesting to note that the on Tuesday announced feature wasn’t out until Friday of last week when a user requested it.
The CEO of Meta replied, “Speak to what you want, and you shall get.”
