Threads Responds to User Feedback, Plans to Introduce Chronological Home Feed
Threads, the new social media app owned by Meta, has announced a series of updates, including the introduction of an alternative home feed. The app, which has already garnered over 100 million users since its recent launch, faced criticism for not prioritizing posts from accounts users follow and instead relying on its algorithm to curate the feed.
Adam Mosseri, the CEO of Instagram and overseer of Threads, acknowledged the users’ concerns and confirmed that a chronological home feed for Threads is currently in development. This change aims to address the frustration expressed by many users who wished to view posts from accounts they follow in the order they were posted.
Mosseri further revealed that Meta’s CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, has given the green light to the alternative feed, indicating his support for the forthcoming update. In addition to the chronological home feed, other features have been earmarked for future implementation. These include the ability to edit posts, translation options for different languages, and a streamlined process for switching between different Threads accounts.
While Threads can be accessed through the web via Threads.net, there is currently no desktop interface for posting content, but Mosseri assured users that this issue is also being addressed. The company is actively working on providing a desktop interface to allow users to make posts more conveniently.
With these updates, Threads aims to improve user experience and address the concerns raised by its growing user base. By offering a chronological home feed, along with other requested features, Threads seeks to cater to the preferences and needs of its users and create a more engaging and user-friendly social media platform.
