Users can now set reminders to take a break while scrolling through Instagram, starting today for a positive and purposeful Instagram experience. In addition to this, the photo-sharing app has also announced some new tools and features to keep young people even safer on Instagram.
In order to improve the experience on Instagram for teens, parents and guardians. Instagram has developed new tools for parents and guardians and launched the ‘Take A Break’ feature.
Instagram has planned to launch its first tools in March 2022 to help parents and guardians to help them guide and support their teens on the platform. They will be able to view how much time their teens spend on Instagram and set time limits. Teens will also get a new option to notify their parents if they report someone, giving their parents the opportunity to talk about it with them.
It is also developing a new educational hub for parents and guardians that will include additional resources such as product tutorials and expert advice to help them talk to their kids about social media.
Take a Break has also been launched to give people the tools they need to make better decisions about how they spend their time. Instagram will also ask users to take a break from Instagram if they’ve been scrolling for a certain amount of time, and we’ll suggest they set reminders to take more breaks in the future.
The users will also be notified suggesting they turn these reminders on. Take A Break feature will be first rolled out in the US, UK, Ireland, Canada, New Zealand and Australia and will be made accessible to user regions by early next year.
Instagram is also testing out a new feature that let teens manage their content when they grow up. They will be able to bulk delete content they’ve posted like photos and videos, as well as their previous likes and comments.
This new experience will be available to everyone in January 2022. In addition to this, the ability for people to tag or mention teens who don’t follow them, or to include their content in Reels Remixes or Guides by default when they first join Instagram will also be switched off.
