Internet users are now spending more than a third of their time using Google products.

Between the ubiquitous search engine and ramifications such as YouTube and Waze, a new report says that Google accounted for more than 34% of the time spent online in June, according to Axios.

But, Facebook has not had the same luck as its competitor.

While it seems that Google is only growing, the analysis found that the time spent on Facebook has plummeted, even considering the use of Instagram and WhatsApp.

New figures from Pivotal Research analyst Brian Wieser suggest that Google is dominating much of our online time.

The use of Facebook, on the other hand, is decreasing faster than ever, according to Axios, while Snapchat and Twitter have not seen many changes.

The report adds support for claims earlier this year that young people are now losing less time on social networks, and Facebook in particular.

Boston, the Boston-based market research company, collected data on 1,000 people born in the year 1994 or later, or "Gen Z & # 39 ;.

And they discovered that 34 percent of respondents had permanently removed social networks, while another 64 percent said they were taking a break.

Many cited their tendency to waste time as a reason for the decision, while others said there was too much negativity on the sites.

Even so, not everyone is ready to disconnect.

Between social networks, watching television and playing video games, a separate report found that adults in the United States now spend almost half of their waking hours watching a screen.

According to data analysis firm Nielson, based in New York, the total time spent using these different media has skyrocketed in the last year.

It has become such a problem that even some social media platforms have implemented tools to help users reduce the time they spend on their sites.

This month, Facebook announced a package of "Digital Health Tools & # 39; that will allow users to set time limits for their use.

HOW CAN YOU VERIFY HOW MUCH TIME DO YOU HAVE ON FACEBOOK AND INSTAGRAM?

Facebook and Instagram users can now control how much time they spend within the application, thanks to new tools designed to improve their digital health.

The new feature is found in the configuration menu of each application.

For Facebook users on iOS, tap the three-line symbol in the lower right corner of the application to open the configuration menu.

Android users should touch the same symbol, but they will find it in the upper right corner.

Scroll down in the settings menu and touch the & # 39; Your time on Facebook & # 39;

For Instagram, users should load the configuration page and then scroll down to the option marked & # 39; Your activity & # 39 ;.

Both applications include a breakdown of the exact amount of minutes you spent on Facebook and Instagram using a particular device.

This information is presented in the style of a bar chat, with users who can touch any bar to see the total time dedicated to that particular day.

Scrolling further down the page, Facebook and Instagram include the option to set a daily reminder that sends an alert after you've reached the amount of time you want to spend on the application for that day.

You can change or cancel the reminder at any time by going back to the same configuration menu.

In the same settings menu on Instagram and Facebook, you can touch & # 39; Notification Settings & # 39; to access an updated tool from & # 39; Silence push notifications & # 39;

This allows you to mute all notifications of the social network application for a predetermined period of time.

When the time runs out, they will be notified.

Facebook users can also mute notifications during specific time windows to avoid distractions.

Instagram, owned by Facebook, also debuted recently with its "All Caught Up" feature that lets you know when you've seen all the recent posts, in a move to stop unnecessary scrolling.
