Threads, although appearing as a simple platform at first glance, is filled with hidden features and tricks that may not be obvious to everyone. One aspect that intrigues many users is the ability to see what someone else likes on Threads.
The Lost Functionality of Threads
There was a time when it was easy to see someone’s recent activities, including the posts they liked. All you had to do was access your Likes, select the “Following” tab, and you could see the recent activity of people. However, starting from October 2019, Threads removed this functionality, considering it a violation of users’ privacy.
How to See What Someone Likes on Threads Today
It is still possible to see someone’s Likes on Threads, but it requires a bit more work.
Visit the Person’s Profile
Start by visiting the profile of the person whose Likes you want to see.
Explore the Followed Profiles
Click on “Following” to see all the profiles that this person follows.
Check the Liked Posts
Select a profile followed by this person and look at the Likes on their posts to see if the desired person has liked any of those posts.
The Possibility of Hiding Activity on Threads
It is important to note that a user can choose to hide their activity by disabling the activity status in the settings. In that case, it would be impossible to track their actions on Threads.
Even though Threads has removed the direct ability to see others’ activities, there are still ways to work around this restriction. However, it requires more effort and patience, and it is not foolproof.
Can I see what I have liked in the past on Threads?
Yes, you can access a list of all the posts you have liked. To do this, tap on your Threads profile icon, go to Settings, then Account -> Posts You’ve Liked.
Do third-party apps for tracking likes on Threads work?
Some apps available on the Google Play Store or Apple App Store claim to track someone’s activity on Threads. However, many of them are paid, and not all of them are legitimate. It is advisable to do thorough research before trying any of these apps.
Thank you for reading, and stay vigilant on Threads!
