How Marketers Feel About Threads

Threads is Meta’s hope to rival Twitter—a text-based platform that imports a user’s existing following from Instagram. Despite explosive initial growth, engagement has slowed dramatically with a 79% decrease in active users this month. SparkToro surveyed marketers to gauge early sentiment. Here’s what they found:

  • Most folks are keeping an eye on the platform. 78% of respondents claimed their personal Threads account, but only 33% claimed their company or brand’s Threads account.
  • Leadership isn’t interested yet. Only 14% of all respondents reported feeling pressure to create a Thread strategy.
  • Marketers aren’t ready to spend. 45% of respondents probably or definitely won’t advertise on Threads if Meta makes that option available.
  • But Threads is not to be ignored. 45% of respondents said Threads will probably or definitely be a top 5 social platform in 3 years.
