Fathers play crucial roles in their children’s lives, and today’s dads are more involved than ever before: according to the Pew Research Center, fathers in the United States have tripled the amount of time spent with their children since 1965. Yet while many dads are equal caregivers and 9 out of 10 take at least some time off after the birth of a baby, too many employers have leave policies that are stuck in the 1960s.
Do you feel like your analytics is working for you? Like really working? If you don’t, you’re not alone. In fact, a survey by Covario revealed only 20 percent felt their current analytics setup gave them insight to help make better business decisions. The cure? Do a better job of leveraging data. Sounds simple enough, but in today’s multiscreen world, sifting through mounds of data and working through proper attribution can be a full-time job.
Things don’t work the same in China. For example, there’s this thing called the Great Fire Wall. No, not the Great Wall. The Great Fire Wall. As in… you can’t access Facebook, Twitter and Youtube in China. You all know this already though – I hope. And let me tell you – that Great Fire Wall is kinda cramping my style. Or rather, my social media strategy. It’s an awesome learning experience nonetheless, getting a social media strategy for recruiting and employer brand up and running for China.
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".
