Social Media Today: Spoiler Shield, Top Social Shows, #IWillListen
By Melony Roy
Spoiler protect your social media
Google Chrome users can now enjoy a “spoiler free” Facebook and Twitter experience.
The Spoiler Shield extension filters out all mentions of selected shows like “Game of Thrones” or “Scandal.”
The shield doesn’t remove the posts, it just covers them with a big banner.
“Breaking Bad” is the most social TV show
Nielson Social took a look back at the programs and moments that reached the biggest audiences and engaged fans at record levels on Twitter in the U.S. from Sept. 1, 2013 through May 25, 2014.
AMC’s “Breaking Bad” took the top spot. Tweets about the series finale on Sept. 29, 2013 reached 9.1 million people across the night.
The second-biggest series was AMC’s “The Walking Dead” followed by ABC Family’s “Pretty Little Liars.”
Today’s first-ever #IWillListen Day includes a social media effort to get Philadelphians to join the conversation on mental health by pledging to listen to others, without judgment using the hashtag #IWillListen.
One in four Philadelphians will be affected by a mental illness in 2014. #IWillListen Day was created to raise awareness and fight the stigma surrounding mental illness.
There will also be a health fair with various organizations taking place in Love Park today.
