The 21st century is all about the internet and computers. We all like to be in the virtual world than in the real one. And in this virtual world, the main components at play are the various social media platforms.
Since Facebook came into or lives, there have been so many other social media platforms which have been on the filed since then. Some of them are used for messaging; some of them are just.
Like Facebook where people can share their personal information and pictures. Even now, business is coming up on these platforms.
Your Ultimate Guide To Instagram’s New Real Friends App
The big business people are trying to get the attention of their target customers through these websites. In all, we all are somehow connected to this big network of social media. In this big list of social media platforms, there has come up with a new app called Instagram. IG has been trending for the last few years and is owned by Facebook.
It is similar to Facebook, where it is used for sharing and posting personal thoughts and photos. Now Instagram has been in the trend for quite some time now. From celebrities to ordinary people, everyone is a part of this social media platform. It has become quite popular, and people’s favorite app in a concise time.
Now there is a new application on the verge of release, which will allow Instagram users to share real-time information. The application is called ‘threads’. This kind of application is being used for the first time on Facebook.
They are trying something new this time. But this has many implications as well. At the moment, the application is just showing the generic location i.e., it will only inform you find that you are on the go, but this type of information is not going to be very specific like where are you and what is your exact location. Although such improvisations are on the way and maybe in the future, this application might be able to give the specific location of the user.
Although here, Facebook is considering such options very carefully as they don’t want the media to be empowered with the very real-time personal information of any public. This can have huge repercussions if not handled properly.
This primary feature, so the app is now under the umbrella of debate. Many are of the opinion that it is a really cool initiative, which will also let other people know of your locations, and obviously, many are just disagreeing with it. Here are some of the points that are being discussed the app.
Things You Need To Know About Threads
As mentioned above, the application is in its initial stage, where it can just say whether you are on the move or not. Also, you can instantly share the pictures that you take through your mobile camera with your close friends on Instagram using this app. The app might be able to give the specific location of the user in the near time. It is going to be very useful as imagine if someone is in trouble or in problem their current location thus shared can be used to help them.
Again there is a notion that the specific location sharing feature of the app is going to be very problematic. Imagine that you have told your friend that you will be at home, but you are actually going somewhere else, they are eventually going to know about it from the app, and this is going to create a lot of problems for you! So this app can actually be an issue for personal space. You cannot lie about your location and whereabouts to your close friends, which is not always acceptable.
Threads are going to be the all in one app in the future. Now all the people are using a lot of social messaging apps all the time, but this is not going to be the case after the threads, the impact of this will be huge, and people are more likely to be on Instagram than use any other app. A similar kind of personal messaging app is there in Snapchat, but sure to the popularity of Instagram and Facebook, threads are going to take the market, and this is going to be a big blow in the face of Snapchat.
With the launch of threads in the market we must know the various features of the application, this application is going to be very exciting to use, at the same time this is going to be the new trending thing on the internet as Instagram is already one of the most popular social media platforms in the present time. Now, here are some features if the application which is discussed in brief.
Some Notes On The Application Features
The application is already present on Instagram, and it can be easily activated by clicking onto the purple button in the Instagram application. In this application, you can choose your own close friends with whom you can share all your personal information, and you can have a real-time chatting facility.
This can be done by going through the ‘pick your people’ options on Instagram. You can even change the setting of the notifications. Actually, in the treads applications, the notifications do not come as Instagram notifications, but they come as threads notification.
So if you want, you can change the settings so that you do not have to see them all the time. Also, you can add as many as eight people on your camera list. These people and their photo icons will appear next to your camera screen, and they can see any pictures or photos that you click on your camera in just a single click. You can even decide not to have any friends avail to this feature. This is entirely up to you.
The auto status feature is the start point if the application. It actually will allow your close friend to know about your daily activity. They can actually see your location, your movement, the status of your battery, and network connection on the phone, although this app will tell your close friend the exact location and address and name of the pace where you are at the present time. It will just give them a vague idea of what you are doing. Video chatting is also possible through this application, and it is straightforward to handle.
The ease of using this application is ultimate. If you have used Snapchat and its personal messaging feature before then, it is going to be very easy for you to handle this application. And if you have not used Snapchat before, even then, you don’t have to worry about it at all as the application is straightforward to use. It has all the options in your hand, just right in front of you.
It is definitely not difficult to understand what you have to do and what do you have to click. Also, the settings section of the application is fantastic. A lot of changes can be made according to the needs pf the user, and it is quite friendly to use as well. Although there is one small hiccup in the application, you cannot delete messages from the application. For deleting the messages, one has to go to Instagram to do that. This can be a bit uneasy for the users.
Deleting the messages is a very common feature that is present in almost all the social media applications or even in simple applications that we use for day to day work.
But the absence of this feature is going to be troublesome at the beginning for a lot of users. Hopefully, with time, this feature might be added to the application.
- Also, you can give status on the application just by having a click on the profile icon of yours in the application. Everything featured in this app, which is quite common in the other applications as well, has been made very easy to handle and use. This is going to be very good for the users to use this application without any complaints.
With applications like threads in the market, it has become very obvious that technology and communication have almost reached the epitome of development. Real-time messaging is going to be the next big thing in the world of internet and social media platforms. At first, people might be a little bit cautious about using it, but with time it is going to be very popular.
Also, the features that are currently available on the thread’s application are just at their initial stage. With time there are going to be all types of additions and improvisation, so these features which is going to make the application a more sophisticated one.
This application has a lot of promises and is really going to add another feather to the other extraordinary features of Instagram and Facebook. My final comment would be that you all just try this feature at least once and see for yourself if it suits you or not. At last, we all must give it a try and see. It might just be the next happening thing for us!
