Conclusion

For now, it is unclear when the new Facebook feature ‘Your time on Facebook’ will roll out to Android or any other platforms as the feature is under development. If Facebook was able to measure our active versus passive time on its app and impress the health difference, it could start to encourage us to either put down the app or use it to communicate directly with friends when we find ourselves mindlessly scrolling the feed or enviously viewing people’s photos.

Technology is not always for good. Where on one hand it promises to ease your life, on the other hand, it is also ruining lives by causing anxiety, depression and neural disorders in the name of Smartphone, Social media or Facebook addiction.
