How Social Media Can Destroy Your Productivity

These days, almost everyone uses social media of some variety. Unfortunately, when you check these accounts at work, you can drastically decrease your productivity. In fact, it’s estimated that around 28% of the working day is spent on social media sites, wasting the American economy around $650 billion a year.

The biggest social media time waster seems to be Facebook, where the average American worker spends approximately 405 minutes on the site every month -that’s almost seven full hours. The average Twitter user spends around 89 minutes per month on that site, which means that if you’re like the average worker, then you spend over one full work day a month on social media. While a quick status post here and Tweet there might not seem like much, that time adds up quickly.
