Threads, a social platform developed by Meta's Instagram team, is gearing up to revolutionize user engagement by testing a new feature called 'hashtags.' Designed to enable instant text and joint public conversations, Threads aims to boost interaction among users. Mark Zuckerberg, the CEO of Meta, announced this development, highlighting the platform's commitment to enhance user experiences.

The 'hashtags' feature, currently in testing with selected users, aims to allow individuals to categorize their posts by topics of interest. This functionality will enable users to tag their posts using the symbol '#', creating clickable links that direct users to related content.

Zuckerberg shared his enthusiasm for this innovation, stating, "Testing a way to categorize your posts with a tag. Starting in Australia with more countries coming soon." The feature's availability will expand to additional countries after the initial testing phase.

The functionality of the hashtags involves an easy tagging process. Users can either select from suggested tags or create new ones while composing their posts. Once tagged, the posts become accessible to other users interested in the same topics, enhancing content discoverability and fostering community interaction.

Additionally, Meta has announced a related update for Instagram Threads, allowing users to delete their profiles independently without affecting their Instagram accounts. Adam Mosseri, head of Instagram, highlighted the platform's responsiveness to user feedback, enabling options to turn off automatic post sharing to other apps, including Facebook and Instagram.

For users reluctant to delete their Threads profiles permanently, Meta has introduced a deactivation feature, offering flexibility without losing account data. The integration of Threads' posts on Instagram and Facebook aims to expand content visibility and audience reach.

Mark Zuckerberg proudly revealed that Threads has surpassed 100 million monthly active users, showcasing the platform's growing popularity and impact on social media engagement. As Threads continues to evolve, these innovations promise to reshape user experiences and interactions within the social networking sphere.
