The company has also announced that to amplify the Take a Break feature in India, it will be running a new ‘Break Zaroori Hai’ campaign with We The Young. The campaign will run for a month and will highlight situations where young people could use this feature. We The Young under this campaign will work with creators, mental health experts and other stakeholders to produce multilingual content emphasising the need for making informed decisions about the time spent on the platform. They will also inform users on ways to incorporate the ‘Take A Break’ feature with their social media routine.
“The wellbeing of young people is important to us, and we’re focused on ensuring that the time spent on Instagram is intentional and people feel good about it. With this context, we’ve launched ‘Take a Break’, to meaningfully improve the experience on Instagram for young people, parents and guardians. We aim to continue our work to create a safe and supportive environment on Instagram, so young people can use it to explore their interests, and find community,” said Natasha Jog, Public Policy Manager, Instagram, Facebook India.
