META Chief Executive Officer Mark Zuckerberg has stated that the company is working on releasing a web version of Threads and enhancing the platform’s search function.
Meta has decided to deliver a web version for Threads after almost two months of a successful debut, and it could arrive as soon as this week. After the online version launches, it could help Meta win back users on Threads, which has apparently lost over 80% of its DAUs.
Microblogging sites are popular with internet users, but sites focused on sharing multimedia are less well-liked. Twitter’s web version attracts users for an average of 11 minutes per visit.
Threads is a microblogging platform that aims to compete with Twitter and Mastodon. Its web version has shown promise, and the firm has ambitious aspirations for the future.
Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Meta, has stated that the business is working on an online version of Threads and enhancing search capabilities.
First and foremost, Threads needs to expand its search capabilities, which are currently limited to user names exclusively.
Instagram CEO Adam Mosseri has also been active on the platform, with a recent Threads post noting that “Meta had been testing an early version (Threads Web) internally for a week or two, but that it needs work,” indicating that further development is required before a public rollout.
Threads, when viewed through the lens of its development, gives the impression that it was hastily created and released, ostensibly to fill the void left by Elon Musk’s purchase of Twitter. Threads’ introduction was successful and it quickly attracted 100 million users, but its rapid expansion eventually stalled.
Recent updates to Threads include a follow feed and the option to validate a link with your Mastodon profile, both of which were included as a result of work being done on Meta.
