It is often difficult to work on the computer because of the large amount of stimuli and distractions we receive from other websites, designed to keep us hooked to them, such as social networks like Facebook or video portals like YouTube. In order to reduce these distractions and be more productive, we can download a Chrome extension such as Nudge.

Override the most distracting elements of a website

The philosophy behind this extension is not to block the Internet, but rather to choose which sites and for how long we want them to stop interfering with our tasks. All in an intuitive way and always taking control of those aspects that most distract us, without completely blocking a site unless we want to.

These are the options and functions offered:

  • Possibility of making a website inaccessible during a specific time.
  • Function to hide sections of a website, those that we believe are most distracting, such as YouTube suggestions.
  • Unfollower for Facebook, which allows us to unfollow every person, page and group in our Facebook news feed. You can even make ads disappear from the social network.
  • Counter that shows how much time you spend on the most distracting websites.
  • Notifier for when you scroll too much, a sure sign that you are wasting your time.
  • Function to disable all functions of the extension for 10 minutes.
  • Whitelist of sites that you want to be left out.
  • Ability to remove Facebook notifications.
  • Ability to change the colour of the Facebook top bar from blue to grey.
