Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg kicked off 2018 by announcing one of his big goals was “making sure that time spent on Facebook is time well spent.”
The concept of time well spent was, in fact, pioneered in 2016 by former Google design ethicist Tristan Harris. The Time Well Spent movement is now championed by former executives at Google, Facebook, Mozilla and other tech firms who formed the Center for Humane Technology (CHT) to raise awareness around the negative impacts of phone and social media addiction.
