Facebook & Instagram Update Shows You How Much Time You Spend On Them
Don’t tell my boss, but even when at work, Facebook is open on my phone. Millions of people around the world can relate to spending too much time on their phones, and most are even on social media when they explicitly shouldn’t be. Like while driving, or while engaged in a full-on conversation with a superior. The addiction is real, and now Facebook wants to help users curb their social media vices by alerting them to how much time they spend surfing the apps.
According to CNN, on Wednesday, Facebook and Instagram will be rolling out a new update that allows users to check how much time they spend on the apps. Users can also set an alarm that alerts them when they have spent a predetermined time on the apps, helping regulate zombie hours and increase real-life productivity. On a side note, imaging owning a company that makes so much money they are finding ways to encourage people to use their app less. Good for you Zuckerberg.
“This is about giving people the tools and the insights for them to decide for themselves what they want to be doing,” stated Director of Research at Facebook David Ginsberg. On Facebook, users can choose “Your Time on Facebook” within the settings menu. On Instagram, the “Your Activity” link will function in the same manner.
