Facebook recently announced a rather unexpected feature: the social network giant is making it easier to keep track of how much time you’re spending on Facebook and Instagram.
To make use of this feature, you’ll need to use the mobile apps. And that’s where a significant caveat comes in: it only tracks how much time you spend on Facebook or Instagram on your phone. Any time spent on Facebook or Instagram in a normal browser won’t be counted.
So, that kind of makes it less useful. However, if you’re the kind of person who mainly interacts with Facebook or Instagram on your phone, then it can really help shed light on whether you might be addicted to your smartphone.
To see how much time you spend on Facebook, go to Settings Your Time on Facebook.
To see how much time you spend on Instagram, go to Settings Your Activity.
If you’re not seeing the feature yet, it’s because it’s still in the process of rolling out.
