With news breaking Thursday night that the U.S. Olympic Committeechose Boston as it's US bid for the 2024 Summer Olympics, Bostonians aired their opinions on social media. While many supported the prospect of hosting the $10 billion event in the Hub, many weren't so keen on the idea.

Local group No Boston Olympics said Friday their members were "fired up," and announced a public meeting on January 16 to be held in either Boston or Cambridge.

'Boston2024's lack of transparency is inconsistent with the Commonwealth's values," the group said of the panel behind the advancement of the Boston Olympics bid.

Meanwhile,Boston Mayor Martin Walsh on Friday vowed that if the city hosts the 2024 Summer Olympics it would avoid the huge public spending overruns that have tainted other Olympics in recent years.
