Facebook has joined Twitter to help you bypass annoying spoilers that can spoil the movie experience.
The largest social network will begin to implement a new deferral feature that will allow you to block certain keywords in the news feed and groups. The keywords will be "delayed" for 30 days, which, according to Facebook, is enough to bypass spoilers. According to TechCrunch, who previously reported this feature, it is available to a limited number of users today.
Media contains a lot, including spoilers. It's generally not a good idea to jump to social media if you haven't seen the ending of your favorite show yet. Even unintentionally, you can spoil someone else's viewing experience with spoilers.
But it's still not clear if the new Facebook feature can help avoid spoilers. According to TechCrunch, you can only snooze keywords when you see posts using those words. This devalues the goal of generally not seeing posts with spoilers. Facebook has already announced to TechCrunch that they are already working on a feature that will allow you to snooze keywords until you see them. This feature is planned to be launched soon.
However, when you see the words you want to hide, you can already select the appropriate option in the window that opens and hide the keywords. Done.
This feature might sound familiar because Twitter already offers similar tools for hiding certain keywords. On your Twitter profile, you can now hide tweets with certain words that you don't want to see in your feed. This feature reduces the likelihood of seeing spoilers and hides posts that the user does not want to see.
