Instagram is preparing for the introduction of a new feature, which will allow users to find out how much time they spend on the social network. The new feature, called Usage Insights, wants to help social users to understand how many hours a day they spend on Instagram screens and, in case of excessive numbers, provide useful data to reverse their trend.
“We are building tools that will help the Instagram community to learn more about the time they spend on the social network. Every moment spent on Instagram must be positive and intentional, “CEO Kevin Systrom wrote on his Twitter profile. “Understanding how we influence the time we spend online is important, and it is the responsibility of all companies to be transparent on the subject. We want to be part of the solution, it’s a responsibility that I take very seriously. “
So let’s wait in the future, then, the debut of this novelty, which could also inspire other social networks, such as Facebook, to do the same.
