Stealthy Trick Makes Facebook Look Like an Excel Spreadsheet Now you can get away with cruising around Facebook at work, even when your boss is peering over your shoulder. Well, as long as the boss doesn't look too closely. Even the laziest slacker can look busy in a jiffy with this interactive adaptation of many of Facebook's functions. Simply go to, click "Gimme Dem Spreadsheets," enter your Facebook credentials, and there's your Facebook newsfeed, all done up to look exactly like an Excel spreadsheet. It's not just a static graphic, either — lets you search for Facebook friends by entering names into the formula bar, load more items, check your newsfeed, wall, or tag photos, hover to see who liked a post, and there's even a boss switch (the spacebar) that immediately changes everything into a vast sea of spreadsheet numbers all nestled within their legitimate-looking cells.
