With mon.ki, a new Chrome web extension, you can stop sifting through Twitter and other social networks to see what people have to say. It serves as a “social compass,” allowing you to see what people on Twitter are saying about a website you’re on or article you’re reading, all in one browser.
Stop switching from page to page. Stop spending your time searching for relevant keywords and tweets. Optimize your time and let mon.ki do the work for you. It takes topics, names and other information from the web page you’re viewing, searches social networks and then provides you with relevant Twitter profiles, tweets, and keywords. Mon.ki is in private beta and currently only supports Twitter, but they plan to expand to Facebook, Google+, LinkedIn, MeetUp and more.
If you’re a Google Chrome user, install the extension and try it out for yourself.

Okay, let’s air the dirty laundry right away. We all browse sites we shouldn’t when we’re putting off work. StayFocusd, an extension for the Google Chrome browser, aims to keep us on task.
“StayFocusd is a productivity extension for Google Chrome that helps you stay focused on work by restricting the amount of time you can spend on time-wasting websites. Once your allotted time has been used up, the sites you have blocked will be inaccessible for the rest of the day.
It is highly configurable, allowing you to block or allow entire sites, specific subdomains, specific paths, specific pages, even specific in-page content (videos, games, images, forms, etc).”
It’s the extension you’ll love to hate. I’ve installed it and am looking forward to being more productive than ever. Also, I’m not looking forward to browsing less on sports sites (ESPN, Deadspin), gaming sites (IGN), and many more. But in case my boss is reading, not THAT many.
What sites are your go-tos? Are you man or woman enough to download StayFocusd? If so, click here.
