As Generation Y enters the workforce replacing retiring baby boomers, companies face the challenge of minimizing loss due to online procrastination by these young techno-savvy employees. This paper explores and discusses the possibility of an online social media application that poses as both a motivation to work and as a self-restricting and disciplining device, which will ultimately improve employee productivity. It uses current and past literature and research to explain the theory behind motivation and procrastination to explain the plausibility of our suggested solution.
