A few months ago, Reddit announced that it was starting to limit the amount of time that users could spend online.
The change was aimed at helping users cope with a number of challenges like stress, insomnia, and social anxiety.
But now, the subreddit, which boasts over 20 million subscribers, has started removing the time limit altogether.
“This is a very personal decision for us to make, based on what’s best for you, your needs, and your sleep,” Reddit CEO Erik Martin wrote in a blog post.
“But this is also a decision we believe we have the right to make.”
For users who want to limit their online activities to just 15 minutes a day, Martin added, Reddit will provide instructions on how to get started.
Reddit, which started as a news aggregator in 2008, has over 5.5 million monthly active users and has grown to become the largest social news site in the world.
Users who want more control over their time on Reddit, or even just want to make their own time limits, can find a more in-depth guide on Reddit’s help page.
While the company has already started implementing changes to its website and app, Martin said that it is also looking to make Reddit’s community more transparent about the changes.
“We are trying to bring more transparency to the decision making process, and that’s really something we want to do for everyone,” Martin said.
