Beaming smiles as three children pose for the camera on fun days out in the sunshine, and a united couple who love spending time with their kids – that’s how photographs portrayed the Hodges family. They seemed perfect, and those who knew husband and wife Robert and Mai said they were happy. The couple had been together over a decade and had three children, Kelvin, 11, Julie, nine, and seven-month-old Lucas.
Black and white photographs depict him as a faceless man, lurking in shadows with long limbs and dressed in a dark suit. Some tales say he hides in the woods, preying on the young and inciting them to kill for him. Others claim he actually protects children. The only thing known for absolute certain is the Slender Man is a product of pure imagination. But the mythical character has such a presence on the internet that many believe he actually exists.
With her nursing job and three young daughters to look after, single mum Ingrid Lyne had been too busy for love. But two years after divorcing her ex-husband, Ingrid had decided she wanted to find love again, so signed up to internet dating. Friends encouraged her – Ingrid was a sensitive and caring person, and she certainly deserved happiness. But the man she had come across online was far from a perfect match. Brunette Ingrid, 40, may have been petite but she had a larger than life personality.
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".
