The social giant Facebook has launched a new tool allowing its millions of users to keep an eye on how much time they spend on the social network’s mobile application.FB Users can also get alerts when they go over a pre-defined time limit.
It is now doable to observe how much time you have spent on the Facebook mobile app in the last seven days. The details of data can be found in the "Your Time on Facebook" section of the application’s menu, under "Settings & Privacy."
FB Users can set a daily reminder to alert them when a pre-defined time limit has been crossed. For instance, if you don’t want to use up more than 30 minutes per day on Facebook, a notice will be sent to alert you each time you go beyond this daily limit. On the other hand, the limit can be changed at any time.
Facebook also offers a shortcut to several newsfeed preferences, permitting users to modify their experience with options such as prioritizing posts from certain friends or unfollowing people to conceal their posts without unfriending them.
It is noted that the same kind of service is being progressively started to photo sharing Instagram.
