How to stop your FaceBook addiction, be more productive on the computer

FaceBook Addiction

A computer programmer claims he increased his productivity at work by hiring a woman to slap him every time she catches him looking at Facebook. That is one way to stop a Facebook addiction.

Maneesh Sethi placed an advertisement on the classified website Craigslist to recruit someone willing to monitor what he was looking at on his laptop.

The computer expert and writer, from San Francisco, now pays a female employee £5 ($8) an hour to strike him in the face if she spots him wasting time on social media.

Mr Seethi claims the unusual motivational system has helped him boost his productivity from just 35 percent to around 98 percent during the working day.
Writing on his blog, he said he felt embarrassed after calculating he wasted around 19 hours every week looking at Facebook or other social media websites.

He wrote: 'Humans are social animals - we aren't designed to live and work alone.

'Now that the average worker's job is to sit in front of a computer, often with no supervision, it's no surprise that we are only productive a three days each week. 

'Having worked mostly alone, on my computer, I found that the majority of my time is spent unproductively.'

He added: 'Nothing makes me more embarrassed than seeing the amount of hours I spend wasted on Reddit and Facebook chat.

In it he wrote: 'I'm looking for someone who can work next to me at a defined location (my house or a cafe) and will make sure to watch what is happening on my screen. 

'When I am wasting time, you'll have to yell at me or if need be, slap me.

'You can do your own work at the same time. Looking for help asap.
