Facebook, and now Facebook-owned Instagram prepares to launch an Activity Dashboard as a means of ensuring that its services are not only fun but also contribute positively towards the user's well-being. The upcoming tool will display the average amount of time spent on each social platform that week and also provide a breakdown of daily activities. In addition to that, there will be the option to add a daily reminder to alert when a certain time has been spent on the online apps.
To further combat over-consumption, there will also be a time-controlled notification muting to avoid distractions. The time-monitoring Activity Dashboard will be available on both Facebook and Instagram in the upcoming weeks, with the options to alter different reminder and notification settings for each social platform.
