People are spending a great amount of time in their social media accounts. Sometimes people get consumed with cute video posts, friend’s vacation posts or even the number of likes in their account. Social media is not completely bad since it allows people to network and advance in their careers but sometimes it can take a lot of useful time if it is not used properly.
Going cold turkey on social media is not a good advice if you want to spend less time in your accounts. There are four simple ways in which people can reduce the time spent in their accounts.
The first option is to stay out of the social media accounts anytime before lunchtime. Maybe try to do something productive at the start of your day to stay on top of your daily duties and to set the tone for the rest of the day. The second option is to mute or unfollow but stay friends. Social media accounts like Facebook lets you unfollow friends and Twitter lets you mute people, this will essentially give you less distractions.
The third advice is to stop saving your login information in the website. Change your browsing setting so that it doesn’t save your credentials, that way it is harder for you to enter into your account. This prevents you to be constantly checking your profiles. Lastly, you can follow relevant groups or lists that share similar interest and also have useful content for you. For example, if you want to advance in your career, follow groups that give you tips on how to do so.
