It may be tempting to log in and just peek at what your news feed is up to, but that’s a dangerous move when you’re trying to get something done. Before you know it, you’re tangled in a web of cute animal videos and profile stalking, and it’s 30 minutes later before you realize you’ve entered the Facebook time warp.

But what if it’s your job to manage social media profiles for a company? Try staying within scheduling apps like Hoot suite/Buffer so you’re not tempted to log in—or check out the Facebook at Work product that promises to keep work and personal separate on the network–and limit distractions from screaming goats.
