Spend Less Time on Facebook and Enjoy it More

4 years ago

Is it possible to spend less time on a site but get more out of it?  When it comes to Facebook, the answer is yes.  Local Fun for Kids has compiled a list of ways to get the news you need from Facebook quickly, without having to wade through the sponsored posts, the game updates, and the continuous notifications for every comment that comes after your own.  And beyond that, maybe it's a case of absence making the heart grow fonder, because by hiding that app on your phone, you'll be less inclined to check the feed and more inclined to do things that are status update-worthy.

If you've been wondering how to spend less time on Facebook, I have 5 ideas to help. These are simple ideas that you can incorporate right now to stop wasting time on your never-ending news feed and focus on what really matters.

So, let's get straight to it!

Please check out the list of ideas over at Local Fun for Kids and tell us exactly how much time YOU spend on Facebook everyday.  Me, I'm probably in the twenty minute range.
