The decline in user traffic for Threads has been a cause for concern. Similarweb, a web analytics company, reported a 79 percent decline in-app traffic within one month. Another analysis pointed out that Threads’ daily active user count has dropped by 82 percent since the app’s launch. These numbers indicate a significant loss of users. And also raise questions about the app’s viability as a Twitter alternative.

Threads initially met with excitement, with Meta Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg announcing that the app gained 10 million users in just seven hours after its launch. However, the initial sign-up surge seems short-lived, as the app has struggled to retain its user base.

The decline in users could be attributed to various factors. One possible reason is the competition from established social media platforms like Twitter and Instagram. Users may be hesitant to switch to a new platform, especially if they are already satisfied with their current social media experience.

Additionally, the app’s performance and user experience may have affected the drop in users. Mixed user reviews have been reported, indicating that some users may have encountered issues or found the app lacking certain features. These negative reviews could have deterred potential users from adopting Threads.

It is worth noting that Meta’s other ventures, such as the rebranding of Facebook to Meta and the introduction of the Metaverse concept, have garnered significant attention and media coverage. However, the decline in users for Threads highlights the challenges that Meta faces in diversifying its offerings and competing with established social media platforms.
