The Mayans believed that Armageddon would take place in 2012, but at Flux we take a slightly different view. It will perhaps not be quite Armageddon, but the rules for a new world order are most definitely being rewritten. The following 10 trends provide a snapshot of “the state we are in” for this year. We are watching them closely and believe you should do so, too. 1.
JOHANNESBURG - Not all of the new trends on our planet are for the betterment of humanity; unfortunately today we discuss one of them: Fake news. Perspective’s, ideology, news, personal choice, social media and governments all have a part to play in this new world of ”alternative facts”.
In hindsight 2017 can be boiled down to one big laundry day: a lot of dirty laundry was exposed, aired, disinfected and ironed flat. In terms of trends, it's been a long time coming and 2018 is going to be the year brands and businesses are forced to go from 'woke', to being wide awake. There are tectonic plates of change grinding beneath our feet, and for those businesses which don't tread carefully, there's a very real risk of falling into the abyss of political incorrectness and obsolescence.
@Arfness@vumatel They try and explain their back end issues which include which company aquisition resulted in which department's handling what. Not bothered. As a customer I just want connectivity. Introducing the left hand to the right hand would be a good start. #justsaying
@vumatel thanks for providing me with a case study of the most disjointed & pathetic customer service. Your core business is connectivity, so 4 days & counting to switch addresses on an existing account is concerning. You won't survive the coming fibre battle.
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".
