In response to user feedback, Meta has taken a significant step by introducing a new opt-out option for Thread posts. If you’ve been bothered by Thread posts showing up on your Facebook and Instagram, this update brings a solution to tailor your content experience.
Meta’s response to user feedback
Listening attentively to user concerns, Meta has initiated the rollout of a feature that allows users to opt out of Thread posts appearing on their Facebook and Instagram feeds. This move is a response to the feedback from users who have expressed frustration with the integration of Thread posts across different platforms via the new carousel.
If you want to opt out, here are the steps you need to follow:
Open the Threads app
Launch the Threads app on your mobile device.
Access the Privacy settings
Navigate to the “Privacy” section within the Threads app.
Locate “Suggesting Posts on other apps”
In the “Privacy” settings, find the option related to “Suggesting posts on other apps.”
Toggle off for Facebook and Instagram
Within this section, you will discover two switches allowing users to control post suggestions independently for Instagram and Facebook. Toggle off the switch for Instagram to stop posting suggestions on that platform. Similarly, toggle off the switch for Facebook to cease post suggestions on that platform.
Why opt out?
First and foremost, the choice is completely yours. If you are annoyed with the post suggestions, then the reason is sufficient enough for you to opt out of this feature.
This update empowers users to have greater control over the content they see on their social media platforms. By providing the option to opt out of Thread posts, Meta acknowledges the importance of user autonomy and preferences.
