Instagram has long been the social media platform of choice for professional photographers and talented amateurs alike, as it not only celebrates top quality imagery, it also makes it more difficult to pinch and share other user's content. But what if you don't have anything interesting to share with the world? According to Techcrunch, Instagram is trialling the option to share other user's public posts to your own story, with the ability to overlay stickers or comments as you see fit.
Getting older brings greater wisdom and prosperity (at least on average, statistically speaking), but it's not without its blights. One of the worst is hair, which stops growing on your head, and starts appearing everywhere else. That's why you need the best nose hair trimmers, which also – as good luck and science would have it – are the best ear hair trimmers. With the likes of the Philips Series 3000 you can bid 'adieu' to those horrible wiry curls.
Sigma has just announced the latest Art line lens to join its armoury of excellent glass and if the specs are to be believed, it could make an excellent addition to the kit bag. Billed as Sigma's "ultimate ultra-wide-angle zoom", the lens incorporates three FLD glass elements, three SLD glass elements and three aspherical lens elements, including one large-diameter aspherical element.
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".
