Mark Zuckerberg Says Threads Could Reach 1 Billion Users

During Meta’s recent second-quarter earnings call with investors, CEO Mark Zuckerberg revealed his excitement for Threads, the company’s text-based conversation app. The call, held on Wednesday, featured Zuckerberg addressing questions about Threads and sharing his optimistic view on the app’s potential for tremendous success in the social media landscape.

Zuckerberg highlighted Threads’ unique position as a messaging app that could potentially reach a user base of 1 billion individuals, making it a promising contender in the tech industry. The app has already achieved an impressive milestone by surpassing 100 million signups, making it the fastest-growing consumer software product in history.

However, Zuckerberg acknowledged that while there was an initial surge in signups, engagement on the platform has experienced a slight decline. Nevertheless, he reassured investors that Threads still boasts “tens of millions” of daily active users.

Zuckerberg emphasized that the main focus for Threads moving forward is to enhance user retention by addressing crucial missing features. He expressed unwavering confidence that implementing these improvements will significantly boost the app’s growth.

Notably, Meta has taken a cautious approach to promoting Threads, refraining from actively advertising it on existing platforms like Instagram or Facebook. Additionally, the company has yet to invest in extensive marketing efforts for the platform. This indicates that Meta is closely monitoring user feedback and performance metrics before launching a full-scale promotional campaign.
