How to Avoid Spending Too Much Time on Facebook
Using the social network to your advantage isn’t always a bad thing. But the time you spend there could be time wasted away from more productive endeavors. And the social networks ain’t always the best place to go for real-life human interaction. Fortunately, there are plenty of other sites where you can unwind, e.g., Twitter, Reddit, or even the ubiquitous LinkedIn.
Of course, the best way to avoid the inevitable is to limit your exposure to the site in the first place. The good news is that you can easily do so with a single click of the mouse. In fact, you can go so far as to mute Facebook on your mobile device. To help ensure a pleasant experience, consider a few small tweaks to your mobile settings, such as turning off your phone’s background and unchecking your email as well. Alternatively, you could even leave it untouched and focus your attention on more important matters. And the social network isn’t the only place you can engage with your friends and family, with options ranging from Facebook’s desktop and mobile apps to Messenger, Instagram, WhatsApp and SnapChat. And it doesn’t hurt to stay up to date on what’s new in your world by regularly reading up on the latest headlines, including upcoming events and new releases.
