Facebook did not reveal any details about the public rollout of Threads feature. Also, there’s no details about whether Facebook will expand the feature to include more users.
On Twitter, threads are useful due to the limited character count and people need to combine posts to complete their tweets. However, on Facebook, where there is no restriction on the character count, Threads may work differently. “Rather than inspiring longer posts, Facebook threads could be used for live commentary on an event like an award show,” as per the report by TechCrunch.
Threads on Facebook may be useful for influencers but little is known about how it may work out. Meanwhile, Facebook has announced new tools for creators to earn money via Instagram. Instagram content creators will be able to earn a commission for a product that their followers buy from their profile. The feature, called ‘native affiliate tool’ will allow creators to discover new products available on checkout.
