Social Media Spoilers

​Social media is great. The world has become connected and you will always be able to find someone to talk to. You can always find conversations taking place on social media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter. The only problem, sometimes these conversations contain information you don’t want to see.

In the age of the DVR it is shocking to me how many people feel the need to spoil the ending to a movie or television show right in my news feed. I have only seen the first season of AMC’s The Walking Dead, but (spoiler) I sure as hell know Rick kills Shane (spoiler) because of my social networks. I am lucky enough to have watched the most recent season finale of Breaking Bad live or else I would have also had that ending spoiled for me. You watch a TV show to see how everything plays out and sometimes social media takes that ability away from you.

Twitter can be even worse when it comes to spoilers. On my Facebook news feed there is at least a chance none of my friends have seen the show I am recording. Twitter’s trending topics will often contain spoilers and there is no way to avoid them. There sit there on the side of your screen destroying surprises for you and crushing your dreams of an enjoyable viewing experience that will leave you of the edge of your seat.

The next time you are watching an amazing movie or television show, keep in mind everyone who is not yet watching that stunning piece of art. Don’t reach the end and then tell all of your Facebook friends and Twitter followers exactly what happened. You are a jerk if you do this. Yes, I am talking to you.
