There was a time when Twitter was the only social media platform to hang out on. Nevertheless, since Elon Musk took over, things have changed. Previously, there were no limitations on viewing tweets or costs for using the blue tick. However, Musk has made decisions that have created a sense of monopoly in the market. Seizing the opportunity, social media giant “Meta” introduced Twitter’s rival, Threads.

However, as an established platform for the last 16 years, especially from a user’s point of view, it is hard to shift to another platform. Nevertheless, besides Twitter, you already know that Meta is an entire universe of social media platforms. Seeing Instagram as the foundation for Threads, Meta released it. The problem is that users need to learn how to find their Instagram friends on Threads. To help you, we will guide you here.

How to Find Your Instagram Friends on Threads

Threads is based on Instagram, allowing you to sign up with your Instagram account. If you do not have an Instagram account, you might not be able to join Threads (as of now). Meta knows that using Twitter for a long time has resulted in many people getting a blue tick and many followers. Someone’s identity can be lost if they switch to Threads in the middle. Additionally, they noticed another common feature: Twitter users have almost the same followers as Instagram users.

For that reason, they decided to create a Twitter rival based on Instagram to help users easily connect with existing threads. Because of these reasons, you need an Instagram account to be on Threads. The cool part is that when you sign up for Threads, you can follow the accounts on Threads just like you can on Instagram. Even some users have trouble finding their Instagram friends on Threads. Therefore, here are several ways you can find your Instagram friends and use Threads and Instagram to find them.

Follow While Setting Up

The first and foremost thing you need to do to get your Instagram followers or friends on Threads is to follow them during sign-up. When you first sign up for Threads, you can follow all your followers on Threads in a single step. Specifically, when you enter your Instagram username and password on the Threads app, it will log you in. Additionally, the next screen will show you accounts to follow. Here, you can either follow a particular account or tap on “follow all” to get all your Instagram friends on Threads. This is the way to get your Instagram friends on Threads.

Take Help from Threads Settings

Remember to remember or ignore the account follow screen while signing up. You can still get them all even after logging in without following your Instagram friends. Threads settings have an option “Follow accounts from Instagram.” With this, you will land on the same page you see during setup. Nevertheless, the problem is that even though the option is under Threads settings, users still need help with it. So below, we are sharing a few instructions to do it.

NoteConsider that Threads will follow those Instagram followers who have signed up for Threads.

  1. Open the Threads app.
  2. Tap on your profile icon appearing at the bottom right.
  3. Now tap on the hamburger menu at the top right.
  4. After that, tap on “Follow and invite friends” >> “Follow accounts from Instagram.”
  5. On the next screen, you will see your Instagram friends list.
  6. Now either follow a particular friend or tap on “follow all” at the bottom to get them all.
  7. That’s it! In the next moment, you will see all your Instagram friends on Threads.

Search Your Friends’ Username

The above two ways surely help you to get Instagram friends on Threads. But if you have not followed any username on Instagram, and you know that such a person is on Threads, then you can still get them. You must type the correct username in the Threads search bar and follow such an account. So to get that correct username, open Instagram and copy and paste that account name into the Threads search bar. With this simple way, you can follow or find any of your Instagram friends on Threads.

Besides that, if you want another way to disclose that you are on Threads, you only need to head to your Threads profile. From there, tap on “share profile link” and select anyway, such as text message, WhatsApp, etc., to share it. So whenever the person to whom the link is shared clicks that link, it will land them on your Threads profile and connect with you quickly. So, you got all the different and easiest ways to get all your Instagram friends on Threads.
