Facebook has announced new tools to tackle social media addiction, available in its app and on Instagram.

Users will now have access to an activity dashboard, a daily reminder and a way to limit notifications to help them control the time they’ are spending online.

The company said it “developed these tools based on collaboration and inspiration from leading mental health experts and organisations” as well as academics and its users.

To access the tools on either app, users need to go to their settings page and on Instagram tapping “Your Activity”, and on Facebook tapping “Your Time on Facebook” to access a dashboard showing them how they have spent their time.
