Threads app is rolling out a way to see your liked posts

Meta’s text-based app Threads is introducing a new feature that allows users to see their liked posts. The company had been testing this feature on the Android beta version, but now it’s available to all users. To access liked posts, users can go to Settings > Your Likes, which can be found on the profile page. This is different from Twitter’s setup, where liked posts are accessed through a separate “Likes” tab on the profile.

In addition to the liked posts feature, Meta has introduced a new media upload quality option. Users can now upload images and videos in higher quality by going to Settings > Account > Media quality.

Another improvement is the ability to sort the following list based on “Latest first” and “Earlier first” criteria. To view the following list, users can go to their profile, tap on the followers facepile under their bio, and then navigate to the “Following” tab.

While these updates are small, nice-to-have additions to the app, Mark Zuckerberg has hinted that more highly requested features, such as post search and a web version, are on the way in the coming weeks.

Threads, which was launched just last month, had a remarkable start with 100 million users signing up in the first five days. However, analytics data indicates that the app’s usage has decreased over time. Nevertheless, with the continuous addition of new features and improvements, Threads aims to keep its user base engaged and attract new users in the future.

It was not surprising to see Meta launch Threads, a social media app that has drawn comparisons to Twitter. However, Threads arrived with a few missing features that users have come to expect from such platforms. Notably, it lacked emoji, hashtags, trending topics, and even a following feed. Additionally, Threads is technically a feature within Instagram, making it challenging for users to delete their Threads account without also deleting their Instagram account. Meta has acknowledged these issues and has started addressing them by rolling out a following feed within a month of the app’s launch.

Despite its initial success, with over 10 million new accounts signing up within the first seven hours of its launch, Threads has experienced a significant drop in users over time. Some users have expressed dissatisfaction with the app, citing its limited functionality and a heavy presence of brands dominating the platform. These concerns have likely contributed to the decline in user engagement.

Nevertheless, Meta seems committed to improving Threads and addressing user feedback. They are actively working on adding missing features and enhancing the user experience. As they continue to make updates and enhancements, it remains to be seen how Threads will evolve and compete in the highly competitive social media landscape. The success of the app will depend on how well it addresses user needs and differentiates itself from other established platforms.
