Similar to what we've seen from Google and Apple over the last couple months, Facebook just announced new tools coming to the Facebook and Instagram apps that are created to help you use them less.

"Below the dashboard, you can set a daily reminder to give yourself an alert when you've reached the amount of time you want to spend on that app for that day".

When they do roll out, though, you'll be able to access them by going to Settings on either app. Millions of people around the world can relate to spending too much time on their phones, and most are even on social media when they explicitly shouldn't be. Tap any bar to see your total time for that day. Those tools are hitting both Facebook and Instagram today, for any of you that somehow manage to find ways to waste hours on a site designed for poking people and looking at strangers' holiday photos.

There's a dashboard with some usage stats, breaking down how much time you've spent in the apps over the last week. You can also mute notifications for a set time in order to minimize disruptions. It's our responsibility to talk openly about how time online impacts people - and we take that responsibility seriously. So if you have problems staying away from whatever bit of Facebook or Instagram keeps luring you in, now you have some tech to keep you away from it. "These new tools are an important first step, and we are committed to continuing our work to foster safe, kind and supportive communities for everyone", Ameet Ranadive and David Ginsberg stated.
