Facebook is currently working on a new tech feature that will let you know if you are ‘addicted’ to Facebook or not.
The test feature will be called ‘Your time spent on Facebook’ and it will let you know, well – how much time you spend on the platform. The feature will show you the number of minutes you spend on Facebook each day during the last week, and calculate the overall daily average.
If you find that you are in fact a Facebook addict, the app will let you set a daily timer that will remind you when you have reached your daily limit of reasonable usage.
Facebook confirmed to TechCrunch that the new feature is in fact in development. “We’re always working on new ways to help make sure people’s time on Facebook is time well spent,” a company spokesperson told TC.
There is no date set for when the new feature will launch, but Facebook is also working on for Instagram, called ‘Usage Insights’. (Facebook owns Instagram)
