Meta Working to Prevent Threads Accounts from Nuking Instagram
Meta, the parent company of Instagram, recently launched its new social networking app called Threads, which aims to rival Twitter. However, users have discovered an unexpected drawback when it comes to deleting their Threads account. The process not only removes the Threads profile but also erases the entire associated Instagram account, as reported by The Verge. This issue has raised concerns among users who are looking for a way to separate their presence on the two platforms.
When signing up for a Threads account, users have the option to use their Instagram credentials, allowing them to import their profile and circles from the popular photo-sharing app. However, this integration comes with the consequence of tightly linking the accounts on both platforms. This limitation has drawn criticism from users who desire more control over their online presence.
