Meta, which owns Facebook, Instagram and Threads recently announced that Threads users can now delete their profile without having to delete their Instagram accounts. Instagram head Adam Mosseri said that based on feedback from the community, Threads will also let users turn off automatic sharing of their posts to other apps, including Instagram and Facebook. “We’re rolling out a way for you to delete your Threads profile separately from your Instagram account,” Mosseri posted on Threads. 

Social media platform Threads, was released in July this year, as an alternative to Twitter. Three months later, in October, Threads reached almost 100 million monthly users. However, the platform that is considered to be a direct challenge to Twitter had several issues. The first issue was that an instagram account was required to sign up to Threads. The second, and major issue, was that users were not able to delete Threads account without deleting their associated Instagram account. In addition, there was no search or direct messaging options.
