Silicon Valley: Facebook will soon be introducing a ‘thread’ feature similar to Twitter that will allow users to comment live at events.
According to a report published in the technology website TechCrunch, Facebook is going to introduce a ‘thread’ feature to its users ‘with a small group of public figures’. In this regard, the Facebook administration says that the threaded posts will also include the ‘View Post Thread’ button, which will allow followers to easily navigate all the posts in the thread.
However, Facebook has not yet revealed the details of the thread’s public rollout feature and it is not yet clear whether Facebook will extend this feature to more users.
Matt Navara, a technology blogger and social media consultant, says: “Thanks to the thread feature, a new post can be added to any old post to create a thread in which the audience of all the posts included is the same as the first post. He also shared screenshots of the feature on Twitter.
According to the website, threads are very useful due to the limited number of characters on Twitter and users combine posts to complete their tweets. However, due to the lack of cracker count restrictions on Facebook, threads can work differently. Are According to the report, instead of a long post, Facebook threads can be used for direct commentary at an event, while they can also be useful for influencers.
