SAN FRANCISCO (KPIX 5) — Many people on Facebook are talking about the wave of sex misconduct cases. But some of the phrases some women are using are getting them banned from the site. Comedian Kayla Avery has been banned from Facebook so many times, she’s come up with a term for it: Facebook Jail.
LA HONDA, San Mateo County (KPIX 5) — Thousands of untouched acres of open space in San Mateo County were set to be opened to the public this Friday. The La Honda Creek Open Space Preserve stretches from Skyline Boulevard to La Honda. It is six miles stretched out over 6,000 pristine acres so quiet, you can hear yourself breathe. On a clear day, you can see all the way to the ocean about six miles away. It’s hard to believe a place this peaceful and serene is only half an hour from civilization.
MOUNTAIN VIEW (KPIX) — It’s part of our mobile-connected lifestyle: storing much of our personal information on the cloud as backup to keep it safe. But the cloud has leaks that have put millions of Americans’ private information at risk. To all the lazy, ignorant, and careless IT administrators out there, consider this your warning. Chris Vickery spends his days poking around databases looking for sensitive data left out in the open, unprotected on the internet.
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".
