Instagram Develops New Safety Tools Following Backlash

Since internal reports were leaked about the damage Instagram has on the mental health of young adults, developers have been working tirelessly on developing software to combat the issue. On Tuesday, the platform announced a new feature entitled “Take A Break”. The feature will be advertised and encourage users to set reminders in order to limit scrolling time. With this announcement came another tool which will be the first of its kind for the Facebook owned company. This feature will be parent friendly and allow guardians to set limits on their children’s scrolling time and what they have access to viewing. Hopefully, these new features help to lessen the negative effects of the app that have only recently come to light.
