Before that, first, see what meta-threads is.

What is Meta Threads?

Meta threads

Threads is a new app developed by the Instagram team at Meta, designed for sharing text updates and joining public conversations. It is considered a rival to Twitter and has gained significant attention due to its rapid growth and unique features. Some key aspects of Threads include:

  • Text-based conversations
  • Customizable threads
  • Compatibility with Instagram

In short, Meta's Threads is like a social media rockstar, attracting over 100 million sign-ups in just a few weeks! 

However, Meta only spills some of the details about Threads traffic. 

No need to stress – we've got a simple solution: UTM parameters.

How to identify Meta Thread traffic in Usermaven

Understanding Threads traffic is key, and here at Usermaven, we make tracking this traffic easy for you. 

UTM parameters may sound technical, but think of them as labels that work with your analytics. 

Replug CTA

They act as reliable indicators, revealing where your traffic originates. 

The best part? We're here to ensure this aspect of your analytics journey is swift and smooth.

Jump into Usermaven directly!

The UTM traffic section in Usermaven is all about who comes to your website through special links you use in emails, social media, etc. These links have extra information called UTM tags. Usermaven can help you see how well these special links are doing and how much they're helping bring visitors to your website.

It is available on our dashboard under the UTM traffic section, which includes five parts.

  • Source
  • Medium 
  • Campaign 
  • Term 
  • Content

The data under these terms comes from the UTM links, which contain all the details.

Here is an example of UTM;
