Instagram and Facebook launch new activity monitoring tools

Instagram and Facebook have released new activity tools that will help you understand and control the amount of time you spend using their apps.

You will soon be able to access an activity dashboard on both platforms, where you will find daily limit and reminder tools too.

These tools will allow you to see how much time you spend per day, per device, and on the apps, respectively.

You can also limit your time, or your push notifications, and even set daily reminders for yourself to assist with time management.

You can access these new features in your “settings”. On Instagram the features are under “Your Activity”, while on Facebook they are under “Your Time on Facebook”.

“We want the time people spend on Instagram and Facebook to be intentional, positive and inspiring”, said both platforms in mirrored statements.

“We have a responsibility to help people understand how much time they spend on our platforms, so they can better manage their experience.”
