Facebook, politics and religion: I say it's time to stop the madness!
While I am at my office I don’t typically take much of a break. My little makeshift kitchen is in said office so when I eat, I usually just sit at my computer. As a natural habit, I look at Facebook to get away from business for 20 minutes. Now, I’d prefer business emails to... Read more »
