MediumThere are a chrome plugin, it's called "Go Fucking Work". I use this extension to prevent me access distraction sites like Social Media, Email, and something else. This extension also can "disable a websites to being blocked". I use this to open StackOverflow, Google, CssTricks, Nosily, etc. Btw, thanks for your nice article!

LifehackerChrome: If you need a little help getting off of Facebook or Reddit and getting things done, Go Fucking Work for Chrome has that in droves-and yes, that's its name. No nonsense, no frills, just sharp, pointed advice. Go Fucking Work turns every new tab page into a reminder that, well, you should really get back to work.
The Daily DotStop me if this sounds familiar: You open a Google doc to write something for work when-ding!-"Laura liked your Facebook status."

Mariusz Ciesla- Product DesignerI use this one. Does good enough job blocking access to apps and websites I don't want to spend time on when working. Also has a "hardcore mode" where you literally can't turn off work mode during certain times. It's awesome.
