It’s a nice thing that Facebook seems to care about users well being. The feature also has tools to help you not spend too much time on the service. You can set a daily reminder that will set off an alarm when you need to get off Facebook and do some productive work.

There are however a few downsides with this new feature. First,  it doesn’t populate time spent on the web interface of Facebook. That means all the time you spend on your computer or mobile browser goes unaccounted for.

The other thing is that this feature does not synchronize the data it collects. The feature is device independent. So if you use Facebook on two different devices, you’ll see two different chats. That’s bound to mislead or make the data hard to interpret for users who use multiple devices.
