Catching up with Apple and Google who recently introduced tools to let iPhone and Android users monitor and limit the excessive time they spend on smartphones, Facebook is rolling out “Time on Facebook” feature to allow users track the time they spend on the social network on a daily basis.

The new tool is rolling out for both Facebook and Instagram users. While it’s called “Time on Facebook” for Facebook, it’s referred to as “Your Activity” on Instagram.
