Earlier this month, we officially launched our #LoveMyShape movement. Taking our body positivity coverage to the next level, this campaign is all about walking the talk and celebrating women of all shapes and sizes. Because we believe that every woman should feel healthy, strong, and confident, and that taking care of your body and soul doesn't look one "right" way.
"My body is not perfect. I have known this since I was a little girl as it was ingrained in my brain to suck in my stomach, tame my crazy hair, or only show the parts of myself that are flattering. Even when I was in the best shape of my life, I never loved or appreciated my body. Today when I see my big arms I remember that my body is STRONG, strong enough to fight with girls in water, and strong enough to skip shot a ball into the goal.
If you're one of the 17 million people who follow Shay Mitchell on Instagram, you know that her feed is basically a dream. Between the travel porn, fitness inspo, and yes, National Pizza Day posts, the actress, best known for her skyrocket to fame on Pretty Little Liars, is one of our favorite follows. (In fact, it's why we teamed up with her for our Body Shop event in Los Angelesnext week.)
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".
