Do you waste time?

friday

It’s that time again….Frivolous Friday! Just a little bit of fun to get you through the weekend. And what are we talking about this week? FACEBOOK!

We all spend too much time scrolling through our newsfeed to see what fun and exciting things our friends are doing. And don’t forget all that time it takes to post your own great status updates, photos and videos. Just to share a post on your own timeline can take about a minute, if you’re adding a comment. So, just how much time do you waste on Facebook? Time Magazine has come up with a way to find out.

Facebook has been around for 10 years now. Hard to believe, isn’t it?  And while many of us make claims that we don’t use it very much, you might not be as accurate as you think. While Facebook doesn’t post data about how often their users log on, Time has created an app that will calculate your time spent on the site based on the timestamps on every post in their feed.  Just log in, allow their app to scan your feed and they’ll give you some very interesting results. Don’t worry, this will not be posted on your Facebook page. (Just click on the TIME magazine link above to be taken to the page).

While it tells me the average person spends 17 minutes on Facebook, our library results were less than accurate, I think. Even though it shows we’ve been online since June 30, 2010, it only recorded 18 posts….and if you follow us on Facebook, we have plenty more than that. Plus, it said we waste ZERO time on the site!  While I’d like to brag about that (yes, all of the time we spend there is important and not wasted at all), I’m hoping your records might be a little closer to the truth. Try it and let us know!
