Online via Zoom
On 5th July, Meta launched its Twitter-like social media platform, Threads. In less than a week, Threads registered 110 million users, faster than even ChatGPT – and it was buzzing!
Has the hype died down now? Will users wait for Meta to resolve teething issues and add more functionality? Will it become the next big social media and marketing platform for businesses – or go the way of Clubhouse?
And most importantly, as small business owners – should (and how) do we add this into our already hectic social media plans? Is it worthy of our time and energy?
To get answers to these and more questions, join us for a casual and intimate Power Hour with members and expert guests who will dive deep into the topic and share all they know.
