Sure, we’ve all made that promise that we’ll cut back on time spent Facebooking. I know I have. But then, I haven’t visited so and so’s profile in a while, a quick detour won’t hurt before I log out. Oh wow, my idol just posted on her fan page, let me check that out for just a second. But first, I want to check out this and that photo collection.
Facebook addiction is one of the biggest concerns regarding social media. Some associate Facebook addiction with a decline in real-life social functioning, academic performance, and just the quality of non-virtual life in general. Because of this, several browser extensions and plug ins have popped up that enable you to track the time you spend on Facebook.
Now those extensions would do the trick but for an all in one solution, we present TimeRabbit. What sets it apart from other Facebook time trackers is that TimeRabbit is NOT an extension. Rather, it’s a standalone application launched straight from your desktop. That way, you can track time spent on Facebook whether you use Chrome, Firefox, or even Internet Explorer.
TimeRabbit enables you to see just how much time you spend on Facebook, down to the last second. Furthermore, it keeps track of your statistics so that you can see how much time you spend in a week, in a month, or even overall throughout your lifetime. You can then use TimeRabbit to really see the state of your Facebook use. Do you use Facebook for more or less than the average time spent per month of a US citizen which is 7 hours or 45 minutes? Use TimeRabbit to find out.
A comment left by Kuba Grecki, TimeRabbit developer, on Mashable hints at future updates to come. These may include, he said, Twitter and Pinterest time tracking due to popular demand as these two websites are also among the most oft used social networks today.
