Ahhhh… Facebook. Facebook and I have a love/hate relationship. While I love going on Facebook and seeing what others are up too, I hate that it takes so much of my time (by choice of course). However, I choose to go on Facebook because I find value in it. I can often find deals from a store, what my local credit union is up too, and interesting news articles.
I came across this article about checking Facebook while at work.
I found it interesting one of the reasons Facebook can decrease productivity is “It’s depressing, and depressed people are less productive.” It basically states that people get jealous of others accomplishments, photos and comments that are posted. I read a similar article last year that you can find here.
I’ll leave you with these questions:
Do you check Facebook at work?
Do you ever feel worse about yourself or compare yourself to others?
Does it make you or others less productive?
Do you check Facebook to put off a project you should be doing?
Have a great weekend YPer’s!
