Facebook Nanny Helps You Stay Focused

Don’t want to waste your time on Facebook? The Facebook Nanny extension for Chrome help you stay focused by only providing access to the social networking site when you have new notifications.

You may have already heard about Maneesh Sethi who, with the aim of being more productive, hired a woman to slap him every time he went on Facebook. You see, the San Francisco blogger often found himself steering away from work and onto Facebook and Reddit. He spent on average some 6 hours per day on the two sites, and that affected his productivity considerably. After he hired Kara to slap him whenever he steered from work towards the social networking site, his productivity went up from 38% to 98%. By getting slapped, his productivity quadrupled.


If you find yourself in a similar predicament but you don’t want to hire someone to slap you (or you just don’t want to get slapped), then you should turn to software for help – and more to the point, you should turn to Facebook Nanny for help.

This is an extension for Google’s Chrome web browser that greys out Facebook and presents this message to you:
[Username] don’t you have work to do?
You don’t have any notifications, which makes Facebook a waste of your time right now. You may still use Facebook message or visit your profile page.

So, as long as you don’t have any notifications, Facebook Nanny blocks access to the popular social networking site and send you back to work. Sometimes a gentle reminder (and not a slap in the face) is enough to get you to realize that by going on Facebook you will waste time that you could use for other purposes.

Facebook Nanny is available for download on the Chrome Web Store here.

The latest version of Chrome for Windows is available for download right here on FindMySoft.
