Our closets are overflowing... With 5 times more clothing than we owned in 1980. And our digital lives make it harder to repeat outfits..."Now, you go out and you post that to Snapchat or Instagram or Facebook and everyone that you've ever met has seen you in that outfit. So that puts a lot more pressure to have freshness and variety then it did lets say, even 5 years ago," said Brett Northart of Le Tote. That's given rise to a new crop of companies specializing in clothing rental.
The convenience of apps, mobile wallets and one-click ordering can be enablers for impulsive spending, and a couple of drinks can make that buy button even more enticing. (NBC News)NEW YORK (NBC News) — Online shopping is getting easier.The convenience of apps, mobile wallets and one-click ordering can be enablers for impulsive spending, and a couple of drinks can make that buy button even more enticing.
The convenience of apps, mobile wallets and one-click ordering can be enablers for impulsive spending, and a couple of drinks can make that buy button even more enticing. "About one in three Americans have shopped under the influence, and it's largely because it's so easy to do from your phone," says CNBC personal finance writer Jessica Dickler. Mixing boozey browsing and quick click ordering can be an expensive cocktail.
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".
