Instagram is developing a new "Usage Insights" tool that'll show you how much time you've spent over the product. According to Wong, this "Usage Insights" option shows up when you tap on the hamburger menu (those three horizontal lines) at the top-left corner of the screen.

In two follow-up tweets, Systrom added "We're building tools that will help the IG community know more about the time they spend on Instagram - any time should be positive and intentional".

Systrom admitted that the time people are spending online may be having a negative effect on individuals, and it was down to companies like Instagram to respond to the issue. This will allow users to break down their personal usage, getting an idea of time spent, data shared and much more throughout the app.

. "I take that responsibility seriously", he said. " Systrom said in another tweet". Whether the feature, which is called Usage Insights, will be launched as a regular offering for all users isn't clear at this point.

Instagram last week announced new features for businesses, soon after launching a payments feature that lets customers buy products and services directly on the social media platform.

It remains to be seen when Instagram will officially roll out the new tool to users in general.
