How to Bring Your Instagram Followers to Threads: A Step-by-Step Guide

Here's how you can hide Threads badge on your Instagram profile

Meta has introduced their new app, Threads, which has been all the rage this week. But many users are asking how to bring their Instagram followers to Threads in an easy way.

How is Threads connected to Meta and Instagram?

Threads is a messaging app created by Meta, the company behind Instagram. It aims to expand the Instagram experience by incorporating text-based communication. The app provides a space for users to express themselves creatively and positively through written content.

“Zuckerberg’s strategy for Threads is top-tier. He has linked it to Instagram. So, if you post on Threads, it will show up to your Instagram followers. From there, your followers are baited to create their own accounts. Instagram has approx. 1.4 billion users,” a user tweeted.

Threads allows users to connect with their friends, creators, and individuals who have similar interests. This includes the option to follow people they already follow on Instagram, creating a seamless integration between the two platforms.

By combining these features, Threads becomes an organic extension of the Instagram experience, aligning with Meta‘s overarching vision of interconnected social platforms. It only makes sense that users would want to get their followers from Instagram as both apps are connected.

Here’s how to bring your Instagram followers to Threads

To bring your Instagram followers to Threads, follow these steps:

During initial setup:

  • Open the Threads app and log in with your Instagram account.
  • Import your Instagram bio, profile name, and links to maintain a consistent online presence.
  • Choose to follow all the accounts you’re already following on Instagram, establishing an immediate connection with your existing network.
  • Alternatively, selectively follow specific people instead of automatically following everyone.

If you missed the signup process:

  • Link your Instagram account to Threads.
  • Navigate to your profile in the bottom right corner and click on the hamburger menu in the upper right.
  • Select “Follow and invite friends” from the menu.
  • Choose the option “Follow accounts from Instagram” to start following the people you follow on Instagram.
  • Individual friends can be easily followed by clicking on their profiles.
  • You can also use the “Follow all” button at the bottom of the screen to follow everyone from your Instagram account.
  • By following these instructions, you can seamlessly bring your Instagram network to Threads, whether during the initial setup or afterward.
