Instagram Launches New ‘All Caught Up’ Feature to Curb Your Scrolling Addiction

Ever since Instagram made the switch from a chronological algorithm to an algorithm based on the users you interact with the most, Instagram-users have sorta been confused, leading users to scroll endlessly via stale posts.

With that confusion in mind, welcome Instagram’s newest feature:

On Monday, the platform introduced “You’re All Caught Up,” which aims to put an end to the confusion and mindless scrolling.

Users can expect to see the feature when they have reached the “end” of their feed—incorporated into their feeds today.

The new indicator includes an encircled green checkmark, letting the user know they’ve seen everything new posted that day while all viewed posts (as well as posts that are more than two days old) will appear below the You’re All Caught Up message.

The new feature appears to be part of Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerburg’s endorsement of Time Well Spent, a nonprofit organization which aims to dilute the “digital attention crisis” brought on by social media.
