users of the much-loved and highly-addictive social media network instagram could soon find out exactly how much time they’re spending ‘liking’ their endless feed of photos. co-founder kevin systrom confirmed rumors and speculation that IG is ‘jumping into the time well spent movement’.





it seems features that allow users to access their usage statistics could be available on instagram in the near future. this comes after arguments of social media’s negative impact have gained momentum in recent years. earlier this year the BBC reported that two studies involving more than 700 students found depressive symptoms were linked to the quality of online interactions. another found that those using the most social media platforms were three times the amount of risk of depression and anxiety.
