There won’t be anyone who would not have heard about Facebook App that was launched in February 2004. It is one of the most popular apps with millions of users worldwide. Later on, Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg introduced Facebook Ads in November 2007, an ad system for businesses to connect with users and target advertising to the exact audiences they want.

Facebook is one such app that constantly gets updated. The improvements and changes in Facebook’s advertising platform assist digital marketers to reach their target audience in several novel ways that often aren’t possible through other marketing channels.

Dashboard To Track The Time Spent On Facebook App

To stay ahead in competition race, Facebook always introduces new features. The latest announcement is the dashboard for users to track the time they spend on this app.

In the month of June, Facebook was working on this time tracking feature. But finally now that ‘Your Time on Facebook’ has made it to the application. It is important to note that the Facebook dashboard will present data in bar chart. Further, it will only display the usage information. It won’t allow users to block themselves as it is possible in Apple’s Screen Time and Google’s Digital Wellbeing.

To access this feature, click on hamburger icon on the top right corner on your Android or iOS device, go to Settings & Privacy section. Then, tap ‘Your time on Facebook.’

In case you cross daily time limit, you can track that as well by setting up a reminder alerts. It will pop up in your notifications feed.

Top of it, you can also unfollow friends or any page to reduce news feed size.

However, as of now, there is no precise breakdown of exactly where your time goes  or on which specific activity like groups, photos, messenger, etc.

How are you going to use this feature and what benefits can it bring?
