After a frantic 11 hours of coding and de-bugging, interlaced with long stretches of wiki-reading and API manual-reading, I finally created a functional Google Chrome Extension Plug-in called "Work Mode - Block ALL Social Media". It's essentially a plug-in to the Google Chrome browser that, when active, shuts down all attempts to access popular social media such as Facebook or Twitter. It was coded in HTML, CSS, and mainly, JavaScript. Also incorporated usage of JSON manifest syntax.

Here's the description I wrote for the Extension:

"There's thirty minutes until the assignment is due. You're on the clock. There's no time to waste.

But...you go on Facebook instead, and waste away your time until there's none left. Social media can be a HUGE time waste.

Luckily, there's the Google Chrome Work Mode - Block ALL Social Media Extension.

WorkMode is a Google Chrome Extension that, when turned on, auto-blocks ALL social media from even appearing. For example, if you try to go to Facebook.com, the tab will auto-shut down - no warning, no mess.

To activate, simply click on the gray/white 'W' icon on the top-right of the Chrome browser. This will now change the color to a red/black 'W' icon, and WorkMode is active.

Work Mode is purposefully built to be as lightweight as possible -- it takes less than a second for most users to download!

Work Mode was developed with the most basic features -- no frills.
Currently, these websites/social media are blocked when the plugin is activated:

  • Facebook
  • Twitter
  • YouTube
  • Pinterest
  • Reddit
  • Vimeo
  • Tumblr
  • Google+
