In a quiet update that warranted no fanfare from YouTube, the online video giant released support for hashtags across all videos. How does it work? When searching for a specific hashtag in YouTube’s search bar, you’ll only see results that contain that specific hashtag in either the video’s title or description. Why use hashtags? The general public likely doesn’t search for many hashtags on YouTube yet, but that doesn’t mean you can’t be an early adopter.
Playlist Live began in 2011 with just 600 attendees, less than a year after the inaugural VidCon – the first events of their kind, bringing online content creators to the 3rd dimension. Since then, Playlist Live has swelled to a massive event that welcomed 13,000 attendees earlier this month. The event now takes place twice a year, with a smaller event taking place in Washington DC in the fall.
YouTube prank star Adam Saleh and his friend Slim Albaher are making headlines after they were kicked off a Delta flight yesterday. According to Saleh, he was simply talking to his mother on the phone in Arabic. “Guys, we spoke a different language on the plane, and now we’re getting kicked out,” he says, in a video of the incident posted to his Twitter. “I cannot believe my eyes.
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".
