They're the absolute best along with Insta reels.

Your snark is the perfect embodiment of why people leave the fedi.

Incredibly well thought out reply. Thank you!

Oh Christ you're insufferable.

I have been, and I guess it saddens me that I'm not enjoying myself as much here as I hoped.

jeze64 OP ,
@jeze64@midwest.social avatar

If you look at my profile you'll see that's not the case. I've been contributing quite a bit.

If you click it it's a video with that song, yes.

I didn't mean to frame the question as a judgemental post towards WhatsApp users. I'm genuinely curious. SMS sucks, and id gladly use WhatsApp if it was popular here. Instead I resort to things like Discord or RCS chats when available.

Statistics show the average person spends far more time on Facebook vs other platforms though.

That's not true though.

People spend more time on Facebook than any other social platforms: https://sproutsocial.com/insights/facebook-stats-for-marketers/

Accounts sitting untouched due to lockouts wouldn't be counted as active. Also Facebook added the ability to create alternate profiles tied to your main account so multiple accounts haven't been necessary for some time.

It's the largest social network in the USA by a large margin.

@jeze64@midwest.social avatar

Your aunt isn't making a new account every week. Also locked out accounts aren't active so that's irrelevant.

Messenger no longer integrates SMS. It was dropped some time last year or even earlier.

Goes against my narrative? Must be astroturfing! Give it a rest, mate.

I feel like this is the best answer so far.

jeze64 OP ,
@jeze64@midwest.social avatar

It's like that in the USA too. Most businesses use Facebook for their "website."

jeze64 OP ,
@jeze64@midwest.social avatar

It has to be, right? Are we that out of touch with normies theses days?

jeze64 OP ,
@jeze64@midwest.social avatar

People always talk about WhatsApp but no one in North America uses it.

But can the Fediverse run Doom?

I'm still trying to figure that out. I've racked my brain but cannot come up with a solution. Time to turn to AI.

Threads, the Instagram-connected messaging app, has a few key target user groups:

Users seeking a more focused social experience: Threads caters to people who want a way to stay closely connected with their close friends and family, without the distractions of a broader social network.
Instagram power users: Threads is heavily integrated with Instagram. Users who actively engage on the platform (sharing Stories, responding to polls, etc.) are natural candidates for Threads, where they can extend those interactions.
Younger demographics (Gen Z): Gen Z is highly active on Instagram and tends to be drawn towards new and experimental social media experiences. Threads appeals to this group as well.
Privacy-conscious individuals: Threads offers more control over who sees your messages and activity compared to broader platforms like Twitter. This attracts those who value a more private social environment.
Early adopters: People who enjoy trying out new apps and technologies often gravitate toward platforms like Threads.
Here's why these groups are a good fit for Threads:

Focused communication: Threads emphasizes streamlined communication with close friends, offering features like quick status updates and easy sharing of photos and videos.
Instagram integration: If someone is already invested in Instagram, Threads is a natural extension for deeper connections with their inner circle.
Youth appeal: Gen Z values authentic, in-the-moment communication styles. Threads fits well with this preference.
Privacy emphasis: Threads allows users to curate their "Close Friends" list and provides extra control over who sees their content.

You'll play it, you'll go marginally faster than a bus, and you'll like it!

You're welcome! ༼ つ ◕_◕ ༽つ

jeze64 OP ,
@jeze64@midwest.social avatar

Yes there is. You tap the "Home" bezel on top of the app.

@jeze64@midwest.social avatar

You only have to scroll up briefly because it auto hides on scroll.

Also there's no conspiracy here. I use phanpy and thought it would be a nice contribution to the Lemmy mastodon community. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ sorry?

jeze64 OP ,
@jeze64@midwest.social avatar

I'm not the creator of the app. You're being weirdly paranoid. This man is the creator https://mastodon.social/@cheeaun
