Take Control of Your Threads: Users Can Now Opt Out of Cross-Platform Posting on Instagram and Facebook!

Exciting news for Threads users! Now you can take charge of where your posts appear by opting out of cross-platform sharing on Instagram and Facebook. To safeguard your privacy, follow these simple steps: tap the two lines in the top right of the Threads app > Privacy > Suggesting posts on other apps. Two switches will give you the power to turn off suggestions on Instagram or Facebook.

Meta understands the importance of user feedback and is gradually rolling out this feature in response to user grumpiness. If you haven't seen the toggles yet, don't worry – patience is key as Meta tends to introduce features slowly.

This update comes as Threads aims to boost engagement and solidify its presence in the social media landscape. With Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg reporting almost 100 million monthly users, Threads is on a promising trajectory just four months into its existence.

But that's not all; brace yourself for potential game-changers! Screenshots posted by software engineer Alessandro Paluzzi hint at Meta's plans to open Threads to EU users, overcoming hurdles posed by the region's Digital Markets Act. Exciting times are ahead for Threads – stay tuned for more updates!
