Instagram will tell you when you're spending too much time on Instagram

Instagram will tell you when you're spending too much time on Instagram”

By showing users how much time they spend on Instagram, the social networking service might risk prompting people to spend less time on the app.

The feature will allow 'grammers to see "time spent" on Instagram, in an effort to help users to gain an "understanding [of] how time online impacts people".

Systrom confirmed the feature after a developer named Jane Manchun Wong dug into the computer code of Instagram's mobile app and noticed an upcoming "Usage Insights" section under testing.

Instagram is building a new tool that'll inform users how long they are spending aimlessly scrolling through feeds.

The feature was initially spotted within the app's code, but Instagram founder Kevin Systrom has since confirmed the tools are incoming, replying "it's true" to a report from TechCrunch, before elaborating in a pair of tweets. He said that any time that users spend on Instagram should be "positive and intentional".

We don't want to know FFS.

. This feature is known as "Usage Insight" and is now hidden.
