How to ensure you don’t see Game of Throne spoilers on the Internet

The popular TV series Game of Thrones is "trending" around the world. People love to watch it, people love to illegally download it, and people love to talk about it.

Now, while that might not worry those who have just watched the particular episode, but those mere souls who couldn't watch it get their excitement killed, thanks to the revealing stories shared on social media. While you cannot stop your friends from talking about those, you can always use Silencer.
