Acne: Let’s talk about it. Most of us have it, but many of us don’t know how to handle it. What we thought would leave us as soon as our high school days were over followed us to college and on to our careers. If this sounds like a page out of your book, trust us when we say you’re not alone. We know how embarrassing it can be to show up to the office with a pimple trying to take over your entire face. It happens. Acne comes in different forms and blemishes come in various sizes.
Earlier this week, Â hair care brand SheaMoisture launched its “Break Free from Hair Hate” campaign and some social media folk areÂ NOT happy with their (ahem) new approach. The video featured four women sharing their personal stories about “hair hate” and embracing their natural hair. One woman is very light skinnedÂ with long curly hair then there is another woman with blonde hair and the last two were red heads.
Thursday, the 1921 luxury brand Gucci, rolled out a series of photos to its social media accounts introducing the world to its pre-fall ’17 campaign. The campaign, “Soul-Scene” depicted an all Black cast, wearing vibrant vintage colors with afros and 60’s themed hairstyles. The first caption read,Â Presenting the #GucciPreFall17 campaign: referencing the spirit of Englandâ€™s underground Northern Soul movement of the 60s.
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".
