Instagram will introduce a new feature that will encourage teens to “take a break” from the platform.
Facebook’s Global Affairs VP Nick Clegg said that the new changes are meant to reduce addiction and unhealthy behavior.
Internal research from Instagram recently revealed that the platform could negatively affect the mental health of teens.
Clegg also said that the platform will “nudge” teens away from content that “may not be conducive to their well-being”.
Instagram has not provided a timeline for when the new features will be introduced.
Facebook also recently paused the development of an Instagram Kids platform.
The company also plans to give parents more optional controls to supervise their teens
