Facebook just Turned On its Time Well-Spent Dashboard for its Mobile Apps

The Facebook time well-spent dashboard is now live on social corporation’s mobile apps to help users moderate their behavior…

Back in August, Facebook and subsidiary Instagram both suddenly introduced new time-management tools. These includes useful features, such as daily limits and temporary muting of push notifications. The new options, called “Your time on Facebook” and “Your activity” on Instagram, are intended to assist users in adopting more healthy browsing habits.

Facebook Time Well-Spent Dashboard goes Live

This is all part of the sweeping trend in the tech industry. As users become aware of how much time they spend on digital platforms, through shocking statistics or by data breach scandals, more tools become available.

Facebook users can simply tap the hamburger menu — the three horizontal lines — on the app. Scroll down to find “Your time on Facebook” and then tap. (Meanwhile, it’s under “Your activity” on Instagram, inside the settings menu, accessible through the gear icon on users’ profiles.)

Ameet Ranadive, team leader at Instagram previously stated:

“We want these tools to be widely available to the whole community, and to anyone that would benefit from using them. It’s really important for people that use Instagram and Facebook to feel like the time that they spend with us is time well spent. That’s the whole purpose of this release.”
