How to prevent yourself from being distracted by Facebook newsfeed?
Does it happen that you go to your fanpage to publish something or reply to a message/comment, and instead of the planned 5 minutes, you spend on Facebook 20min or more browsing profiles of others?
Think how much time you lose if this happens to you several times a day?
Spending too much time on the Internet has become so popular that it affects adults, teenagers but also children. Social networking sites such as Facebook are created by specialists so that we spend as much time as possible on them. Often, we don’t even notice how our plans are supplanted by silly videos, memes and worthless content. Distraction is the enemy of efficiency, which means that it takes more time than it should to do a specific task.
What to do in that case? Of course, you can completely block Facebook, but you run your business fanpage and you need to upload posts and write back to customers. So, can you block Facebook completely?
If the above situation also applies to you, then don’t worry, I have good news for you – there is a way. To improve your performance, the Chrome plugin – Kill News Feed is ready to serve you.
There is a solution
The task of this plugin is to hide your new feeds wall, so you can’t see your friends’ posts and avoid distractions. However, this plugin allows you to freely run your business fanpage, so nothing important will be missed.
Kill News Feed can automatically turn on when you enter Facebook and you can turn it off at any time to see what your friends have added or you can turn it on manually for when you need full focus.
I use this plugin myself and it works great for me. Below I’m sending you a link to download the Chrome add-ons:
Let’s not forget that Facebook is just a tool and you have to use it with your mind, just like with a knife or fire. An additional thing you can do to improve your efficiency definitely sort what is displayed on your board/newsfeed.
I don’t know if you are aware, but Facebook is filtering your content. If it seems that you are more likely to click on “funny” or “negative” content, it will only start showing it to you.
That is why, if someone adds content that doesn’t really interest me, I just stop watching/follow them – we are still friends on Facebook, but his/her posts are not displayed on my board. Remember that the Facebook algorithm displays to you what you like, comment and share. Then more content appears to you.
For example, I follow industries that interest me. I follow companies, people whom I like. I like, comment and engage with people because then I see more of such content. Thanks to this, great and positive information appears on my wall.
