After acknowledging last week that Meta's X competitor Threads would not actively recommend political content, the company today announced a new feature called 'Today's Topics' on Meta's Threads app. This move aims to allow U.S. users to engage with political discussions through the app's newly tested feature. By introducing 'Today's Topics,' Meta aims to create a platform where users can stay informed and participate in political conversations.
When political and social issues touch business and the workplace, employees and their leaders sometimes struggle to address those issues effectively. With the introduction of 'Today's Topics' on Meta's Threads app, users now have a dedicated space to discuss and engage with important political issues. This feature provides an opportunity for individuals to express their opinions, share information, and learn from others, fostering a more inclusive environment.
Meta is trialing a new feature called 'Topics' to curb the recommendation of political content on Instagram and Threads. This decision comes amidst concerns about the spread of misinformation and the potential for polarized discussions. However, users can still opt-in to receive political content if they wish to stay engaged and informed on political matters.
