Social Media, specifically Facebook, can take up so much time that could instead be used on being productive. Due to its’ nature, when I used to log onto Facebook, I would find myself scrolling and scrolling, and before I knew it – an hour and a half has gone by!
I tried avoiding the problem by not logging onto Facebook at all, but that proved to be difficult because I have to go into Facebook regularly to run my Facebook ads. I use the ad centre, and I also use the pages that I manage. I have minimal hours to work on my business because I have two small children; I’m limited to working in the mornings only.
When I do sit down to work, I have to stay focused so I can get things done without distractions (like the Facebook newsfeed). So I started researching and discovered a hack that I now use, which has saved me so much valuable time! So without further ado, let me tell you how it works.
I found an extension on Chrome that eliminates the newsfeed on Facebook. You can use it for most of your social media sites like Twitter, LinkedIn, Youtube, and Reddit – (I’m not sure what Reddit is, but the extension works for it too!)
It looks like this:
How to Install it
Here’s an easy step-by-step guide on how to set it up
- You simply need to search for News Feed Eradicator for Facebook
- Once you have found it, you’ll click on add to Chrome.
- Next, grant the permissions to install the extension and select which sites you would like to enable it for because it’s not just for Facebook.
- Then, select Facebook. It will ask you again to allow these permissions, so allow them.
Your news feed will now be replaced with a cute little quote – it won’t distract you for hours, don’t worry – and you’ll get so much more done!
Being distracted for hours on end is a serious global issue, so I really recommend trying this extension out if you can relate to this. I hope it works for you, and I would love to hear what you think of it!
