Instagram is one of the most popular social media platforms

Facebook and Instagram are the two most popular social media platforms. Many people spend a lot of time on these platforms either due to work or just to pass their time. However, what we don't usually notice is how much time we waste on such social networking sites. Facebook has come up with a new activity tab which will also be available on Instagram.

The new activity tab on the Android/iOS app of Facebook and Instagram will allow users to know how much time they have spent on the app.
