Meta founder Mark Zuckerberg has recently revealed that the company is testing out a new tagging feature for Threads that’s similar to hashtags but not quite exactly the same. Though users will create a hashtag to add a topic conversation, Threads will convert it to a blue-text hyperlink, instead of showing up as a hashtagged word. The “limited test” will be launched in Australia first.
Threads users when typing a “#” into the post text field will bring up a card with the topic they’re tagging or other, similar ones. Underneath the list of relevant topics, will be the number of posts made on the platform, similar to Instagram.
Users who will have the tagging feature available to them can only add a single topic at a time to a post. The company is still working on the feature and might change certain functions about it later.
