A fashion, beauty, and lifestyle blogger just posted her inaugural swimsuit photo on social media in the hopes of bringing attention to what it means to have a "bikini body." That Belfast Girl blogger Gemma-Louise Bond recently penned a Facebook post about taking a swimsuit photo for the first time to break the stigma surrounding who "can" or "cannot" take photos in their bathing suits. "The internet largely portrays slim girls in a 2 piece bikinis and it literally hurts my heart.
A recent college grad has raised thousands of dollars for constructive surgery after opening about about a condition that left her born without many of her reproductive organs, including a vagina. Twenty-three-year-old Kaylee Moats went to the doctor when she was 18 after realizing she hadn't started her period yet.
In early August, 18-year-old Li Ao's parents checked their son into an internet addiction treatment center that promised to use physical exercise and counseling to help their son overcome his extreme internet usage. They'd spent the Chinese equivalent of roughly $3,500 to let him stay at the center for up to six months. Two days after leaving him at the center, however, they received a phone call that he'd passed away in the hospital.
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".
