Themes are getting a new feature that will allow users to bookmark their favorite posts. The feature was first announced by the Meta-owned microblogging platform earlier this month and was being tested with a limited number of users. It is now rolling out widely and more users should be able to access the feature in their app soon. Recently, the Meta-owned social media platform was also spotted testing a new section where trending posts will be shown to some users, similar to the trending page on X (formerly known as Twitter).

Instagram CEO Adam Mosseri announced the launch of the Saved Posts feature via a post on topics. He said, “We’re rolling out Save on Threads more broadly starting today, so you can bookmark your favorite posts for later.” Interestingly, when asked if saving posts could affect the platform’s algorithm and feed, Mosseri responded : “Ultimately yes, but I don’t know if that’s the case yet.”

The ability to “tag” or “save” posts is now very common on today’s social media platforms. Since most homepage feeds offer infinite scrolling and are algorithm-based, rather than showing recent posts, there’s always the fear that a good post or thread might disappear if the user closes and reopens the app. Bookmarks are a good way to keep track of the posts you’re viewing on the platform.

How to save posts in threads

To save a post to Threads, click the three-dot menu in the upper-right corner of any post, then tap Save from the list of options. A toast notification will also appear at the top of the page confirming that the post has been saved. Once saved, the post will be listed in Reserved section. You can visit your profile, then tap the double horizontal line icon to open the settings menu, then tap Reserved which is currently the fourth option from the top.

Recently, Threads also began testing a new Today’s topics section. This feature will be an extension of the search page and will show up-to-date posts in real-time. Unlike X (formerly Twitter), there will be no hashtags to label the trend, and instead topics will be seen as plain text, with a title and a post above that discusses the topic. Users will be able to click or tap on the topic and join the discussion.
