It had 16 million downloads on Google Play and came in 8th place. The app also took sixth place in terms of new installations in both stores.

Immediately after its launch, the Threads platform showed record momentum: 100 million users registered here in just five days. Starting in September, the number of daily downloads began to decline, but meta in December managed to change the situation by launching on Facebook Advertising campaign with viral threads posts. Today there are already 160 million users on the platform, but how many of them are active?

A potential growth factor for the platform is integration with the Fediverse family of decentralized social networks that exchange data via the ActivityPub protocol. Threads is working on mechanisms for integration with ActivityPub and the ability to publish content from other websites to the platform. The new microblogging service is actively developing, but the record numbers belong to another meta-project — Instagram became the most downloaded application on the App Store and Google Play in December With 54 million downloads, it even surpasses TikTok.
