But if you are doing a job that needs you to focus on your work then you need to keep your social and work accounts separate.

If you keep checking your emails during your working hours, the emails that do not concern your work then it will only distract you and affect your work efficiency.

Social account

The Social account here addresses the account that in unofficial you can exchange it with your friends and family or at some outlets to get alerts. That’s something totally unrelated to work. It may make you feel refreshed by looking at messages from loved ones but it will be wastage of time.


If you think you are an amazing multi-tasker and you can manage all your emails besides doing your office work then sorry but you are mistaken.
