Mark Zuckerberg, the CEO of Meta, recently announced a new feature for the social platform, Threads. Threads is considered to be one of the vital features of Twitter/X, and it introduces a hashtag function that makes it easier to search for posts under the same category or topic. This feature will initially be tested with users in Australia and then expanded to other countries.
However, the hashtag system in Threads differs slightly from X. Users will type a ‘#’ to input the desired hashtag topic, and an autocomplete function will assist in suggesting topics as they type. The hashtag topic will appear as a hyperlink within the post, colored blue, without the ‘#’ symbol. To view the posts under a particular hashtag, users can simply click on the link.
One limitation of Threads is that it only allows for one hashtag topic per post, while X allows for multiple hashtags to be included in a single post. It remains to be seen if Threads will make adjustments to this aspect.
TLDR: Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Meta, has unveiled a new feature called Threads on the social platform. Threads introduces a hashtag system to easily find posts under the same category or topic. The system differs from X, but further testing will determine if any adjustments will be made. (117 words)
