5 Ways to Spend Less Time on Facebook During Office
Since the time Facebook has come into our lives, it has become a popular work-time enemy. Being extremely addictive by nature, it has been quite a factor in lowering people’s efficiency, and many people have admitted to wasting their time on it.
While it’s good to stay connected with your friends and also learn about their opinions on various things happening in the world, there’s always a limit one needs to set to the amount of time they spend on their ‘virtual social life’. And this is extremely important, especially when you are at work. If you’ve been spending a lot of time on Facebook lately while being in office, here are some ways in which you can get rid of that and focus more on work instead.
1. Say no to multiple tabs
One of the main reasons for people to get tempted and distracted every now and then is to have Facebook logged in constantly on another tab in your browser. Instead, just keep your mailbox open. Don’t keep multiple tabs and don’t stay signed in all the time, so that you don’t get tempted to browse through your Facebook news feed.
2. Shut Notifications
Whenever you comment on a picture, leave it at just that. Switch off the notifications to avoid yourself from getting involved in the whole conversation of other people responding and commenting. Similarly, you don’t need notifications for every friend request you get, or every like or comment on your posts. You could just go to Facebook at the end of the day and see all the notifications in one go, rather than going every now and then with every new alert, which can be quite distracting and unproductive.
3. Talk to colleagues
How about making real conversations at work? If you have free time, socialize with people at work rather than chatting with people online! Go over to the cafeteria and make friends with people from other departments over a cup of coffee. Spend your breaks in the real world rather than the virtual world!
