Working on the computer with no restrictions to the Internet may give you freedom, and keep you away from stress whenever you need to free your mind, but at times, this could also distract you from work. You may not even notice that you are distracted – until you notice lower levels of productivity. I guess, some self-control is required at this point.

To share your opinion on a video with friends, you need to hit the ‘Share’ button just below the Youtube video and select option to share on Facebook. But there is a simpler way to do this, with Facebook Youtube Comments. Facebook Youtube Comments is an extension for your Chrome browser that will add a Facebook Comments section on Youtube for easier sharing on your Facebook.
