You Can Now Find out Just How Much Time You Waste on Facebook and Instagram

By Mustafa Gatollari

Go ahead and count the number of times you reach for your phone in a day. Now count the number of times you did that, not because you received a notification or had an actual issue you needed to address — like something you had to look up or someone you needed to contact — but reached for your phone just because.

Just because there was a lull in a conversation, or you were bored or had "nothing" to do. So you went ahead and opened Instagram or Facebook, and scrolled through your feed tapping things you "like," peering at your device mirthlessly.

You know that you spend a bit too much time on your social media feeds, but now, thanks to these new tools on Facebook and Instagram, you'll know just how much.
