In a series of posts, I’ll talk about the experiences I’ve had in designing identity access management for mass adoption. Unlike more old-school enterprise IAM systems, the consumer or customer IAM platform (CIAM) has some special needs that need addressing. In this first post, I’ll look at credential recovery challenges of CIAM.
As we are all aware, we are living in the era of the “selfie.” Like them or loath them, they are filling the cloud like billions of droplets of water. In 2016, had 24 billion selfies uploaded to Google Photos. But it isn’t just selfies winging their way into the clouds. Social media in general is having a long, drawn out, love affair with images, Facebook having uploaded every day. There is a real, human-based, reason for this. A photo is a way to share who we are, what we do, and how we do it.
If you’re of a certain age, you will remember the dot-com revolution back in the day. I remember sitting in a meeting with the CEO of the company I was working with at the time. He sat across the table with about five of us and stated: “I want a dot com spin on our company – how do we do it.” Everyone wanted in on the dot-com act. It was seen as a major money maker, it didn’t matter if you had an angle or not, you had to do it to demonstrate true innovation in your organization.
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".
