The Nerdy Photographer Podcast

Jul 10, 2023

Last week, Meta launched Instagram Threads and it already has over 100 million downloads!

Just what you wanted, another social media app to worry about, right? Well, I have a quick intro to Instagram Threads as well as my pros and cons of the platform so far.

The energy on the app is sort of like the early days of Twitter or chat rooms near the turn of the millennium. There's a lot happening and it's all rushing by at lightning speed.

Whether the platform has the endurance to stick around in the already crowded social media landscape, there are opportunities for photographers as well as other visual creatives and podcasters (yes, showing some love for my podcast community).

From image quality to discovery to how to take advantage of the sign up process to get more followers, there is a lot packed into this short episode.

Be sure to listen and then get on threads while the shiny new feeling is still on the app. Use this time to make important connections and broaden your network. And just have fun. Be warned, though, there are some difficulties with the app. 

But those are growing pains, right?
