Popular photo sharing and messaging social media app Instagram is giving it’s users more control over the notifications they get by introducing an option that would silence app notifications for a given period of time similar to that of WhatsApp’s mute feature. Called as ‘Pause All’ feature it would turn off notifications for up to eight long hours.
Given the huge amount of time we waste on social media, it’s better to have an option of turning off Instagram completely every now and then to curb addiction.
Instagram is very well-known for developing addictive behaviour, especially among younger users of Instagram.
Also, WhatsApp is said to have taken a lot of measures to bring down the spread of misinformation and fake news on its platform in our country but there is more to work on in order to fully secure WhatsApp.
