BloKO blocks Winter Olympics spoilers from social media

See also

Now you can read Twitter and Facebook without a friend or someone you follow telling you the outcome of the events.

BloKO is the mobile application that blocks sports spoilers from social media, and now they have updated their robust app to work alongside Sochi Winter Olympics results.

That means you can block all those spoilers that frustrate many of those that depend on social media.

The time difference between Sochi and cities in the U.S. makes spoilers hard to avoid.

Users can now use and set up filters for Twitter and Facebook that will limit what they see in regards to Winter Olympic events. BloKO is currently available for download in the US at the Apple App Store for your iOS device.

“We’re really excited to have this for the Olympics since the time difference in Sochi makes it difficult to watch events live," explains BloKO founder Ryan McKim. "Users can watch the Games on their own time, but with BloKO they don’t have to worry about one of their friends or over eager reporters ruining the outcome by mentioning results on Twitter or Facebook.”

It sounds easy, and the good news is that it works.

BloKO is offering filters for all 15 Winter Olympics events. That would include Skiing, Bobsled, Curling, Hockey, Luge, Nordic Combined, Snowboarding, Skeleton, Speed Skating, and Short Track Speed Skating.
