Facebook adds new Keyword Snooze button in News Feed to allow users to avoid spoilers
Facebook has just announced that it has begun testing a new feature that will allow users to avoid having spoilers displayed in their News Feed. The new feature is called Keyword Snooze and it's already available for selected users on mobile devices.

A new Keyword Snooze button is now available to those testing the feature in the upper right-hand menu in News Feed. You can use it to temporarily hide posts by keywords, which are pulled directly from text in that post.

For example, if you choose to snooze the word “westworld,” you will stop seeing any posts in your News Feed containing that exact word or phrase from any person, Page or Group for a maximum of 30 days.

Obviously, this doesn't guarantee that you won't get any spoilers even with the Keyword Snooze option enabled, but the chances become slimmer with every word that you add on the snooze list.
