Fight your Facebook Addiction with Focusbook.


Are you addicted to Facebook? You may not want to call it an addiction but when you find yourself wasting a number of hours in there, been up to date with your newsfeed yeah, that’s what it is, an addiction. It’s not a hidden fact, almost evryone get caught up in it once in a while, thing is, it makes no sense for one to be lost in there wasting precious time while other things and our own reality are left unattended. Focusbook, a neat Chrome plug-in might just be what we need to gain control.

Focusbook helps to reduce the length of time spent on Facebook by setting specific purposes for each session and making you stick it to, that is its simple concept.

After installing, it will ask you why you want to visit Facebook whenever you navigate to the site and as your mission is being fulfilled, it reminds you that you’re probably already done and it’s time to get back to doing other things. This it does by using a regular pop-up and descending blue mist, so you’d quickly round off.

Although this might help to a great extent, we know that it won’t  be enough because there are still mobile apps of Facebook in our mobile phones which would keep delivering distractive notifications. It would now be up to us to go ahead and kill the newsfeed on or find other means of disabling those notifications.

There’s so much that needs our attention, we really don’t need a social network eating up the better part our of time. They should be visited as at when appropriate and very convenient.

Facebook is an online social networking service headquartered in Menlo Park, California, in the United States. Its website was launched on February 4, 2004, by Mark Zuckerberg with his Harvard College roommates and fellow students Eduardo Saverin, Andrew McCollum, Dustin Moskovitz and Chris Hughes. The founders had initially limited the website’s membership to Harvard students, but later expanded it to colleges in the Boston area, the Ivy League, and Stanford University. It gradually added support for students at various other universities and later to high-school students. Since 2006, anyone who is at least 13 years old was allowed to become a registered user of the website, though the age requirement may be higher depending on applicable local laws. Its name comes from the face book directories often given to American university students.
