WHAT IS IT?
Threads is a new platform developed by the parent company of Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp. The interface bears resemblance to Twitter, featuring a stream of primarily text-based updates. However, users are also able to share photos and videos. This platform facilitates instantaneous discussions, enabling individuals to engage in real-time conversations.
WHAT WE SAY:
Treat with caution.
