You'll soon be able to see how much time you spend on Facebook each day
It appears that Facebook plans to allow users of its social network to see the amount of time they spend on it every day. The feature is already hidden in the app's code, but it hasn't been enabled yet since Facebook is still working to make it ready for prime time.

However, the social network confirmed to TechCrunch that they are actively working on this upcoming feature called “Your Time on Facebook,” which is supposed to show users various statistics like their time spent each day, as well as the average time spent per day each week.

Also, the new feature would also allow Facebook users to set a daily reminder that notifies them when they've reached the limit, along with a shortcut that makes it easier to change their Facebook notification settings.

Naturally, the new option will be available to Facebook users on both Android and iOS devices, but it's unclear if it will be enabled on both platforms at the same time.

Any word on this coming to browsers or the windows 10 app? Sadly with the state of Android tablets, I do think the windows 10 app is better than the Android version.

If you need Facebook to tell you to get off of Facebook and are using Facebook to track how much time you are on Facebook you desperately need to get a life, the intelligent thing to do would be to just get rid of it. That's like using a drug to ease you off of the same drug thinking it will cure your addiction.
