Website to increase perceptions of busyness – on a Zoom call?! What?!
I was browsing Reddit and came across this thread: reddit.com/r/InternetIsBeautiful/comments/rhnxl9/dont_look_busy_enough_on_zoom_calls_use_this/
Apparently there is a website to make background noises like calendar notifications, text messages, calls, etc. to make it seem like you are really busy while on Zoom. (I would assume this would apply even if you’re on the phone.)
This is a whole new level of the absurd.
Don’t do this. As one commenter posted, this basically makes you seem technologically illiterate because you can’t silence your notifications while on a Zoom meeting. Just lacks professionalism.
However, I could see it being useful if you’re trying to get off that sales call that is unnecessary, and you know you’re not going to buy from that person… Or you are trying to pretend like you have friends… 🙁
