Since the introduction of Threads, Meta, the parent company, has actively promoted it through various channels, including Instagram and Facebook. One promotional method includes strategically inserting Threads posts amidst your regular social media content.
It’s important to note that Meta will automatically showcase your Threads posts on other platforms, even if you’re not actively using those applications. Additionally, if you’ve previously deleted your Facebook account, your Threads posts might still appear there. The concern that arises here is that you may not desire your family members on Facebook to have access to your Threads posts, due to privacy implications.
For individuals aiming to maintain privacy by preventing their Threads posts from being visible to friends and family on other Meta-owned social platforms, this article provides the necessary guidance to achieve the goal.
To eliminate your Threads posts from appearing in the feeds of Facebook and Instagram, you need to adjust specific privacy settings.
1. Launch threads on your mobile device and tap on the Profile icon at the bottom right corner of the screen.
2. Next, tap on the 2-lines icon at the top right to open Threads settings.
3. Tap on Privacy > Suggesting posts on other apps and disable Instagram and Facebook using the respective toggle buttons.

5. In case you are looking to grow your audience on Threads, you may want to leave the above option enabled. The choice is yours.
