I feel like I'm going to be the last person on Earth to get Instagram's archive feature. All my friends have been able to hide their old photos for months. Most got the tool way back in June when Instagram announced that the feature would accompany its 10.21 release for iOS and Android. But not me. Instagram's first tests of the features go back even further; some Verge staffers saw it on their accounts in late May. Archiving lets users choose posts to take off their grid.
143 million compromised Social Security numbers: everything you need to know about the Equifax hackIt has been marked as the worst data breach in US history. Attackers stole half the US population's Social Security numbers from Equifax this spring, but the company only notified people in September. The fallout has been swift, with government agencies looking into the incident, class action lawsuits being filed, and consumers demanding free credit freezes.
At its annual hardware event this month, Apple announced a new wireless charging mat called AirPower that can charge either an iPhone 8, 8 Plus, or X at the same time as AirPods and an Apple Watch Series 3. At the time, we wondered if this meant that the AirPods and Apple Watch Series 3 would also support the Qi wireless charging standard, like the new iPhones.
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".
