Web site HardlyWork.in lets you check your Facebook Newsfeed at work without the worry of prying eyes with a clever interface that poses as an Excel spreadsheet.
Just go to the site and give it access to your Facebook account, and it populates a pedestrian-looking spreadsheet with your Facebook newsfeed. No eye-catching logos, sound effects or chat windows will mar your appearance of diligent productivity. You will be able to browse your photo albums, so be careful as pictures can be eye-catching to that work busybody that always seems to be walking by your cubicle.
You can hover your mouse over comments and Likes for more information and thumbnail previews. You can even activate the space bar as a "Bosskey" that acts as an emergency kill switch to kick you immediately into a more real-looking spreadsheet should you need to look like you're doing legitimate work in a hurry.
These sort of tools are always a little silly—for example, the HardlyWork.in window uses a Windows XP style, so if that's not what you're using at work, it will stick out. But as we've noted before, unproductive work is a more sinister time sink than goofing off, so maybe it's not all bad.
