‘Digital health,’ the movement to restrict our times on apparatus so we are able to focus on other things, has been among the greatest tech buzzwords in the past couple of years. The concept has permeated so much that today even Facebook is trying to get one to quit using Facebook.
The company recently announced a new feature called’Quiet Mode,’ which does pretty much what you would expect: limit the time spent on the program.
Facebook says the feature”mutes most push notifications” and that if you open Facebook while it’s triggered,”you will be advised that you set this time aside to limit your time in the app.” Quiet Mode also includes shortcuts to your notification settings and nourish preferences so you can correct the kinds of Facebook alerts and articles you see in the first place.
Facebook claims the feature”mutes most push notifications” and if you open Facebook while it is activated, “you will be reminded that you set this time aside to limit your time at the program.” Quiet Mode also contains shortcuts to your notification settings and nourish tastes so you can adjust the types of Facebook alerts and posts you see in the first place.
The attribute is still rolling out, but once available can be enabled by going to Facebook settings, then tapping on”Your Time on Facebook.” After in quiet mode, you’ll see how long you have to remain, and you can also schedule the attribute to activate during particular periods of the day.
It is a nice gesture considering the company has been built on user addiction. I am convinced there are better ways to invest your time down at home than considering stale memes on Facebook.
