According to rumors, Mark Zuckerberg’s social network has not surrendered to the idea of waging war in Snapchat and so is giving rise to an app that has the features so loved by fans of Snapchat. Threads, the new Instagram app, is about to be born…
That’s what Mark Zuckerberg did: creative and ambitious. And this is testified by the latest rumors that the U.S. company is about to launch the war in Snapchat. From the ashes of Direct, which ceased to exist last spring, the most fashionable social network of the moment is working on a project as ambitious as ever.
Privacy is an aspect increasingly considered by social users as there is an increasing need to share content with short lists of friends. Considering that it is not possible to set up an ad hoc privacy for every Instagram post but only for the Stories, here comes the idea of Threads.
According to the indiscretions of The Verge portal, it will be possible to share a status, the position and the % of battery. With Threads you can share content in real time through a geolocation, while maintaining full control of privacy. Any content we share will in fact only be visible to those who we would have included in the short list of closest friends. Obviously a green dot will indicate the users online.
