Typically, this blog focuses on solid marketing and advertising advice, as well as technology to do both better. However, this Post Fourth of July, if you need to ease your way back into work a little slower, we understand, and want to offer a suggestion as to how.
Everyone needs a break once in a while. Often times, when we are “on break”, we are still at our desks, just doing non-work stuff. Let’s face it, the computers on our desks provide us an opportunity for entertainment, as well as work. However, unless you have a neon sign that lights up “On Break” or “On Duty”, if you are sitting at your desk, people assume you are busy working. Having your Facebook account loaded up gives the impression that you are goofing off when you are supposed to be working, when in fact you are simply taking a break.

This site takes your Facebook stream, and turns it into an excel spreadsheet look-alike. The image in the bottom right changes, to be the profile pic of the name you hover over, of the image shared in the wall, etc. It shows the number of likes on each wall post, as well as the comments. Hovering over the comments count shows the comments, in a note-like fashion.
So, to the casual observer, you are still working, and you don’t have to worry about looking like you are wasting company time when really, you are on your break.
Enjoy! And remember to use it responsibly!
