How to block spoil­ers from so­cial me­dia

It’s a pain when you have to go cold tur­key on so­cial me­dia to avoid spoil­ers from your favourite shows. For­tu­nately, we have some so­lu­tions that don’t in­volve lock­ing your­self in a room with­out Wi-Fi:

Get Un­spoiler

We be­gin with the nu­clear op­tion. Un­spoiler (un­spoiler.tv) is a Chrome ex­ten­sion that will cen­sor all head­lines and so­cial me­dia posts that men­tion any of the key terms or words that you’ve cho­sen to black­list.

Fil­ter Face­book

Since Un­spoiler works on any site you ac­cess via your Chrome browser, those red sen­sor boxes can feel ob­tru­sive. But the FB Pu­rity ex­ten­sion (fbpu­rity.com) only tar­gets Face­book, and lets you hide any post that men­tions your cho­sen show.

Si­lence Twit­ter

Twit­ter is the eas­i­est site to cen­sor. Sim­ply dig into the set­tings, click ‘mute’ and you can fil­ter out any word or phrase you de­sire.
