Facebook and Instagram Announce New Time Management Tools: Info
Activity Dashboard: You can think of it like a new tab where you read how much time you spend on Facebook. From here you can open and manage your time on Facebook by setting reminders. Moreover, Here you can Manage your Notifications as well.
Daily Reminder: It is an option where you can set a reminder about how much time you want to use on facebook. Hence, after spending that much time on the platform facebook prompt you reminder notifications.
Mute Push Notifications: By this feature, you can mute new notifications for posts, pages or anything on facebook for some amount of time. But don’t worry you can later access those notifications from the notification tab. Facebook keeps those notifications there. By enabling this feature, Facebook simply doesn’t give you Push Notifications as the name of feature signifies.
Similiarily, Instagram also have these kind of features.
Facebook officials say that they design these tools by consulting several Medical and Behaviour experts. Let me explain it to you in detail. When we surf Facebook we often see that time easily pass on but as a result, we gain a little less. Some of us open Facebook to gain some information and we waste hours and hours of our time seeing funny videos.
Officials say they do not build this platform for these kinds of scenarios to happen. On average most Facebookers spends their most time navigating to Facebook feed. Accepting this fact, Facebook officials also frequently updates the Facebook feed algorithm. In fact, in past, they roll out several features to make Facebook Feed better. These features include See first, Keyword Snooze, Unfollow etc.
