Getting married is incredible in so many respects . From hearing your boyfriend utter those four fateful words ("Will you marry me?") to the unforgettable parties thrown in your favor before the big day, the days leading up to your wedding are arguably some of the happiest of your life. One other cool thing that happens when you get hitched? You get gifts—and lots of them! Some couples opt for a honeyfund, while others stick to more traditional registry items like fine china and espresso makers.
Worried about your single friends getting a little, well, lonely on your wedding day? You shouldn't be. Thanks to Hinge, a popular dating app with some genius marketing skills, the singles table just got a lot sweeter. And while their campaign probably won't be implemented at your own reception (UGH! ), it has been making waves on the web. Hinge decided to crash 25 lucky weddings on July 22 and 23 by deploying an epic Snapchat geofilter called " The Singles Table ."
Jeopardy may not stir up feelings of romance in most people, but for one brainy duo, that's exactly what happened. Maryanne Lewell and Michael Townes met each other, as fate would have it , as contestants on the game show back in 2013. It was the annual Jeopardy Teacher's Tournament, and while they weren't in the same taping, the teachers did end up meeting when all of the contestants went out for drinks. The New York Times caught up with the (now-married!)
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
