Amidst the battle to regain the love of fans for its much-hated redesign, Snapchat seems to be testing a bunch of new features to make it more useful for its users. We have discovered that Snapchat now enables you to add face lenses to your selfies after a photo has been clicked. If you’ve ever used Snapchat in your life, you may know that you can simply tap on your face while clicking a selfie to bring up a collection of lenses.
These days some tech companies seem more concerned about how to grow the user-base, than securing their servers or keeping user data private. We’ve seen OnePlus and Xiaomi both operating unsecure payments gateways, but it has now been discovered that Truecaller Pay’s server was also openly accessible up until a while ago. As reported by Redditor always_say_this, he had been tinkering around and come across a vulnerable server that was being used for Truecaller Pay transactions.
One of the earliest and most trusted smartwatch brands, Pebble’s legacy is coming to an end later this year. Fitbit bought the company earlier in 2016 to bolster its efforts for the withering smartwatch ecosystem, shuttering the hopes of 2 million Pebble users. But, the company’s loyal fans (who’re also developers) are not yet ready to give up on their watch.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
