Mark Zuckerberg’s company Meta is already causing a stir with its new app Threads just a few days after its release.
The app, which links to Instagram, has already attracted attention from Twitter, which has threatened legal action against the company.
While not everyone is a fan of the new social media platform, it is still enjoying widespread popularity: over 70 million people have reportedly signed up in the first few days of its existence.
If you’ve already signed up, you’re no doubt still in the process of finding out who else is in the process of getting acquainted with the post and enjoying the plethora of cat photos already posted.
But one thing you might need to know more about is how to increase your follower count.
How do you get more followers on threads? This is what you need to know…
How to get more followers for threads?
The main way you collect followers on Threads is through your Instagram account linked to the app.
When you sign up for a Threads account, you automatically send follower requests to all your existing followers on the photo sharing site.
If they also subscribe to threads, they will see the follower request from you and follow you back.
So the more followers you have on Instagram, the more chance there is that they will join you in threads as well.
However, there are other ways you can try to increase your follower count on the site.
Post regularly in threads
The more you post on the site, the greater the chance that other users will see and interact with your posts – just like they would on Twitter or any similar social media site. That, in turn, can increase your chances of gaining more followers.
Try to post every few hours while the site is still in its infancy. And if you’re funny, witty, and succinct, then that’s even better — because that can encourage more people to add you to the list of accounts they follow.
Publish images, GIFS and other visual content
You can make your posts even more interesting by adding photos, memes, GIFS, videos or any other visual content to increase the chance of being seen.
How to deactivate your Threads account
- Go to your profile in the Threads app and click on the “double line” icon in the top right corner
- From the options that appear, tap Disable Profile, then confirm by clicking Disable Threads again.
If you don’t want to turn off your profile but want to control your scrolling, you can also choose the “Take a break” option, which reminds you every 10, 20, or 30 minutes to put your phone away and do something else instead.
