Guide: How to Block Spoil­ers on Face­book and Twitter

A person who is a die-hard fan of Game of Thrones will hear that the first episode of the season is out and it may take a few hours to watch it. So he would probably lock himself in a room, throw away the key and all communication via social media and WhatsApp and cut all that to save himself from the spoilers. Not just Game of Thrones, spoilers can ruin almost any movie and TV show you’ve been waiting for for months. “Have you heard about Jon Snow’s ****?” Shutterstock Most of these spoilers come from popular social networking websites such as Facebook and Twitter. Some of your friends consider it their birthright to just spoil the movies for fun, but they really don’t understand how important it can be for a person who’s been waiting a few months to enjoy the show like everyone else. So today I will share a few with you tricks which you can use to combat such spoilers on Facebook and Twitter and make sure you can enjoy the show or a movie without spoilers.

Block spoilers on Facebook

We will be using a tool called FB Purity which is a browser extension available for most modern browsers. The extension works out of the box to combat irrelevant content on your Facebook timeline and hides it to show only the content that is important to you. Most of this content that FB Purity hides from news feed is game requests, application spam, ads, and sponsored stories. When you install the extension and load Facebook, you will see the FB Purity link below the status update box, which indicates the number of updates the extension has hidden from you. Clicking on the FB Purity link will open it up the FB Purity Options.

Below the News feed filters section, you will see many options to filter the news feeds you get on your FB timeline. Under the option where you see Text Filter, enter the words or phrases (on separate lines) that you want to filter from your newsfeed. For example, for Game of Thrones, it should be GoT, Game of Thrones, Jon Snow and whatever you think could be used by your friends in their status updates.

That’s it, once you’re done you can click Save and Close to save the settings. You are now safe from spoilers when it comes to browsing Facebook in your browser.

Block spoilers on Twitter

There are extensions such as Open Tweet Filter and Larry Filter for Twitter available for Chrome and Firefox respectively that allow you to block tweets with specific keywords while browsing the official website. You just need to install these extensions and enter the keywords, hashtags, and even the users you want to block on your Twitter timeline.

It’s that simple. These extensions will protect you to a great extent when it comes to spoilers and other useless updates that you get on your Facebook and Twitter timeline.

What about smartphones?

For Facebook, there is no app or settings that I am aware of that can block keyword-based updates in the official app. Either way, you can delete the app and your phone a favor with massive battery drain and unnecessary background app activity. For Twitter, there are several third-party apps available for Windows, Android and iOS that allow you to blacklist certain keywords on your timeline. We’ve already covered some of the best tools with this feature in one of our previous articles and you can take a look.
