Social media engaging or ruining Olympics experience?

St. Petersburg, Florida -- If you're trying to avoid spoiler alerts during the Olympics, you almost have to live in a cave. That's because so many social media sites are glued into delivering results as they happen in London. 

University of South Florida Professor Kelli Burns joins 10 News Anchor Heather Van Nest to chat about how social media is changing your experience. 

Whether you're getting text alerts from our Gannett partner USA Today with winner updates or logging on to Facebook and Twitter without seeing results. People have been tweeting and posting angrily about how the coverage has been spoiled between word of mouth or socializing online. Some say it's ruining their experience while others say it may enhance it.

We had hundreds of posts on the results we've posted on Facebook. We invite you to weigh in on whether social media is giving it all away or if it's just giving you more of a forum to stay up to date. You can tell us what you think on our 10 News Facebook page, but beware, you may see some results on there too.
