Americans are more frequently consuming news via Facebook than from traditional news sites or even Google, despite the social media platform’s complicated recent history with factual stories. Facebook handily leads sites like CNN and Fox News, with 42 percent of people surveyed by Morning Consult saying they access it several times a day for news versus 20 percent for traditional news outlets.
Some Americans are willing to try out an online meal kit delivery service, Morning Consult polling shows. But the high price of getting a group of ingredients for dishes like roasted chicken with panzanella salad is causing people to cancel their existing subscriptions — or forego trying such services at all. Only 19 percent of people surveyed in the recent poll said they have tried a home delivery meal kit service like Blue Apron, Hello Fresh or Plated.
President Donald Trump has more than 33 million followers on his personal Twitter account, but most of the voters who cast their ballot for him in 2016 aren’t holding their breath for his next tweet. Fifteen percent of those who voted for Trump last year said they follow his tweets “very closely,” and 19 percent said they follow his Twitter account “somewhat closely,” according to a Morning Consult/POLITICO poll.
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".
