As Spider-Man: No Way Home begins hitting cinemas in other parts of the world, it's time to filter social media feeds to avoid spoilers.
There's still a long way to go before the much-awaited Marvel movie arrives in the Philippines on Jan. 8, 2022 and you can expect other people from all over the globe to be posting all about it in excitement. The cast themselves have urged fans not to spoil the movie, but some people might let details slip through the cracks.
Luckily, you can take some measures to keep your feeds free from spoilers. Here are a few tips you can follow.
Go to Settings and Privacy > Mute and block > Muted words > tap on Add at the bottom right. Enter hashtags and phrases related to the movie like #NoWayHome, #SpiderManNoWayHome, Tom Holland, Zendaya, Spider-Man, multi-verse, and more.
To be safe, you can throw in Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield, too, so you won't know whether or not they're in the movie until you watch it.
Unfortunately, there's no way to filter out single words on Facebook. What you can do, however, is mute friends and pages that are prone to spoiling movies.
Find a post from that user, then tap on the three dots at the top right side and choose Snooze [user] for 30 days. This way, you won't also see comments on their posts that might lead to spoilers. You might want to mute any Marvel-related pages for the month.
For Instagram, you have to do the same thing as Facebook and mute users prone to sharing spoilers. However, you can block phrases or words from comments on your posts in case you share something Spider-Man-related.
Go to the Settings > Privacy > Comments > Manual Filter > and add the words. Make sure to unfollow #SpiderMan hashtags, too.
As for other platforms like YouTube or TikTok, there's no setting to mute words or snooze people yet. The best thing you can do is unfollow or unsubscribe from people who create videos on Marvel movies, for now.
If all else fails, staying off social media is the best move. Here's to hoping Jan. 8 will come sooner.
