Instagram has announced plans to influence users to take a break from the platform.
The new feature is designed to protect kids from overusing the app. The announcement of the new feature was announced a day before CEO Adam Mosseri is set to testify before lawmakers.
In a blog post, Mosseri write that the platform will be “taking a stricter approach to what we recommend to teens on the app, we’ll stop people from tagging or mentioning teens that don’t follow them [and] we’ll be nudging teens towards different topics if they’ve been dwelling on one topic for a long time.”
Instagram will also be allowing parents of teens access the amount of time that their children are spending on Instagram.
The feature that allows users to opt into using will launch in the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, and a few others.
The New York Post is also reporting on other new features like bulk deleting content.
