There’s one thing all of us movie lovers can agree on – we hate spoilers! Moreover, we hate surfing on social media fearing that we will encounter some post revealing information about our favourite movie or TV show.
For instance, a couple of weeks before Avengers Endgame premiered, there were already spoilers all over Facebook. Same goes for HBO’s hit show Game of Thrones. People simply couldn’t wait to post spoilers about the first episode as soon as it aired.
Unfortunately, I was among the people who saw a spoiler about the Avengers Endgame plot while scrolling through Facebook. Personally, that’s when I said enough is enough! I was determined to stop using social media until I could watch the movie at the cinema. But, then I realised, there’s no need to go that far.
So, I started digging online, and I found out that we can easily block spoilers on Facebook. And today we are going to teach you exactly how to do it.
Block Spoilers On Facebook
Now, here’s the thing. Facebook doesn’t have a direct option from where you can block content you don’t want to see by accident. However, you can still block spoilers automatically using add ons.
Indeed, for this to work, you will need to use Facebook from the Google Chrome browser. You see, Chrome has a webstore from where people can download hundreds of different add-ons. And one of those add-ons is going to help us achieve our goal.
So, here’s what you need to do. First of all, click here. You will be taken to a new window where you will find a Chrome extension called Blacklist. Then, simply click where it says “Add to Chrome” and wait for it to install.
Finally, go to Facebook and refresh the site. You will now find a new section on the right side of your screen called Blacklist. Now all you need to do is to type the terms you don’t want Facebook to show you and click save. And that’s pretty much it. You are now safe from spoilers.
There’s one thing to keep in mind. The blacklist add-on is limited to blocking certain terms from appearing on Facebook. So, you still need to watch out for images and videos. At present, there’s not a single extension that can help us block that type of multimedia content. But, perhaps in a near future, there will be.
Finally, all we can tell you is to be careful of the sites you visit. And remember, Thanos demands your silence.
