Users of Meta's Threads app are reporting a new feature that allows them to opt out of having their posts shown on Instagram and Facebook.

This feature is accessible through the Threads app's privacy settings, where users can toggle off suggestions for posts on Instagram or Facebook, effectively keeping their Threads posts separate from Meta's other platforms.

Meta has been gradually rolling out this feature to Threads users, so if you don't see it yet, it may arrive in due time.

Meta introduced a "For you on Threads" carousel on Instagram and Facebook in recent months, which some users didn't like. In response to user feedback, Threads decided to implement this opt-out switch, aiming to address concerns and give users more control over where their posts appear.

The introduction of this feature was intended to boost engagement on Threads, which had faced some challenges after its initial launch. However, Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg recently stated that Threads now boasts nearly 100 million monthly users, showing promise for the platform's future.

In addition to this opt-out feature, there are hints of other potential changes coming to the Threads app. A screenshot shared by software engineer Alessandro Paluzzi suggests that Meta might be preparing to open Threads to users in the European Union, despite initial reservations due to the region's Digital Markets Act regulations governing cross-platform data handling.
