If you've ever found yourself experiencing deja vu while scrolling through your Instagram feed -- I mean, how many car selfies can one person take?! -- you're probably going to love the new feature the app just introduced.
"You're All Caught Up" will be incorporated into your feeds immediately -- and it notifies you when you've looked at all of the day's content with a green check mark. [Anything that you have previously viewed and/or is more than 2 days old will appear after that.]
The only downside to "You're All Caught Up" is that it increases your awareness of how much frickin' time you spend on social media, instead of curing cancer or talking to the people around you.
Instagram telling me I’m all caught up on posts every time I scroll is making me feel so bad— Sarah Blennerhassett (@sarahbhassett) July 3, 2018
Turns out I spend a lot more time on the app then I thought pic.twitter.com/TwtmqJeQwi
I don’t like how Instagram tells you that “you’re all caught up” now and that I’ve “seen all the new posts from the last two days.” Like, yes I know that I don’t have a life but you don’t have to remind me— Aim 🐢 (@_aim10) July 3, 2018
But I guess even that makes sense, as Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg endorsed Time Well Spent, a nonprofit that's trying to end the "digital attention crisis" brought on by apps like Instagram.
it’s about damn time Instagram rolled out the “you’re all caught up” feature— Molly (@mollyanne06) July 3, 2018
Instagram you wouldn’t need this “you’re all caught up!” notification if you would just put chronological order back but ok— sydney ⚖️ (@sydneybertsch) July 3, 2018
