Threads currently has 100 million active users and 150 million downloads since its launch on July 5, 2023. One of the primary reasons for this tremendous growth is that Threads is an Instagram app. You need an Instagram account to use threads. Instagram itself is a popular social media app, and it is easier than ever for the Meta team to migrate Instagram users to Threads without aggressive marketing.
Meta is the parent company of WhatsApp, Facebook, and Instagram. WhatsApp is a chat facilitator, and Facebook and Instagram are high on short-form video content. So, the only part Meta hasn’t touched upon is the text-based platform. Threads app is designed specifically to fill that noticeable gap serving as a potential rival for Twitter. Not to overlook the fact that users can’t find much difference between Threads and Twitter.
However, Threads is new to the arena, so there are a few significant issues to tackle. We will be addressing one such pressing issue in today’s blog.
How to Follow Everyone on Threads After Skipping?
Did you skip following someone on Threads who you followed on Instagram while launching the application? Here’s how you can fix it. This is the most straightforward way, where you do not need to manually search for each user to follow them on Threads.
Step 1: Open the Threads application on your Android or iOS device.
Step 2: You’ll land on the home page as soon as you open the app. Now take a look at the bottom right corner of the screen. You’ll see a profile icon. Tap on it.
Step 3: Now that you are on your profile page, take a look at the bio section of your tab. There, you can see the followers option. Tap on it.
Step 4: You can see the list of followers on your profile. Now take a look at the menu located at the top of your screen. There, you need to tap on the following option.
This is where you can see all the people you follow on Threads. So, if you have skipped following the Instagram pages you followed, we can quickly solve it from here.
Step 5: Below the following tab, you’ll see “XX following. See others you’re following on Instagram that you’re not following in Threads yet” You need to tap on the see all option placed next to this note.
Step 6: Now, you can see the list of people you follow on Instagram but not on Threads. Take a look at the bottom of the screen, and you’ll see the follow all option. Tap on it.
If you don’t want to follow a few users, it’s better to follow each user manually instead of using the follow all option. All you need to do is tap on the follow option located parallel to the username to follow only specific pages.
Many users prefer to export all the Instagram pages they follow to Threads, as they like to keep tabs on the content creators they like. And they definitely don’t want to miss seeing how their favorite creators adapt their content to the new platform. If you’re also intrigued by the same, this follow-all option can come in handy for you.
Why can’t I find an Instagram user on Threads?
Threads is an Instagram app, and you need an Instagram account to sign up on Threads. However, that doesn’t mean everyone who is on Instagram is also on Threads. You see, some content creators are highly focused on video content. In contrast, Threads is a text-based platform.
Many use Instagram to leverage video content. So, for those creators, Threads might be irrelevant, and they might choose not to sign up with threads. That’s why you can’t find a specific Instagram user in Threads.
If you want to see if whoever you follow on Instagram is on Threads or not, we have a simple way to do that. Instead of manually searching for a user name and scrolling through endless search results, we have a better way for you.
Here’s how to find out if an Instagram user is on Threads:
Step 1: Go to Threads from an Android or iPhone device.
Step 2: Now tap on the profile icon located at the bottom right corner of the screen to go to your profile page.
Step 3: There, you need to look next to your profile picture. Find the followers option and tap on it.
Step 4: You’re now in the followers tab. Take a look at the top menu, where you need to tap on the pending option to go to that tab.
As a result of following all Instagram pages on Threads, you can see a list of users who are on Instagram but not on Threads. This means they haven’t opened an account on Threads yet, and you can start following them as soon as they do.
As said earlier, if an Instagram user is not on Threads, they probably think the text-based platform is irrelevant to them, or they might not want to hop on the bandwagon yet. So, you need to wait until they open an account on Threads.
