Facebook is so Popular!
When Facebook started in 2005, it wasn't really a big deal. No one knew what it would be today. You probably didn't even know about Facebook until two or three years ago. I would even guess that you were pressured into getting an Facebook account. Even though you should worry about your Facebook Security Settings, this isn't going be about that. It however is going to be talking about how to Disconnect from Facebook!
Why Would I want to do that?
There will be some of you who will probably ask this one question and I could give you several answers but there is only one real answer. Productivity! Disconnecting from Facebook will make you more productive in anything you do and will keep your attention on what needs to be done.
The Extreme case!
You can delete your account and be totally disconnected from Facebook but that is the worse case scenario and I will not recommend that to anyone even my friends or family. Although I've heard this happen it isn't the best choice for some of you who like to keep in touch with family members and share photos with.
Disconnect me Please!
This is a services and a plugin that helps block Facebook and others such social sites. It will help you speed up your browsing and keep your privacy safe so I highly recommend Disconnect.me which was also talked about on Security Now.
Remove all Facebook Apps!
If you have a smartphone and a tablet, this is something that is a must if you want to keep from being interrupted and slowing down your productivity. By removing these apps from all your devices, you will not get the urge to go check Facebook or have those notifications coming to you.
Finally Check Facebook Once a Day!
If your like me you will undoubtedly want to keep your account and thus you will want to at least check it once a day. I suggest either morning or night depending on your work or sleep schedule to go online through the web and see what is going on. I would however say the less you spend on Facebook the easier it is to keep from wanting to be connected with it. So get on check and get off. Don't spend to long on their exploring and playing games. Remember why you did all this and you will be far better off then when you started.
