It’s realizing you haven’t stepped on the scale for as long as you can’t remember. It’s being able to eat a cookie and enjoy the taste without eating twenty cookies at once. It’s having dessert without wanting to punish yourself after. It’s not constantly stopping at the mirror, lifting your shirt up to check how flat your stomach is and sucking it in when you feel like it’s too fat. It’s not pinching your stomach when you sit down.
Social media is a powerful tool. It can be inspiring, like Healthy is the New Skinny's body positive posts. It can help save someone from an eating disorder, but it can also be dangerous, helping fuel orthorexia and turning clean eating into a serious eating disorder. With the rise of Kayla Itsines’s Bikini Body Guide, which is a 30-minute bodyweight workout that anyone can do in the comfort of their own home, there also came a rise of body transformation photos flooding Instagram.
Do a quick search of Dig Inn on social media, and youâ€™ll see tens of thousands of posts from famous food bloggers, Instagrammers, college students, athletesâ€Ś you name it. What started as an unassuming expansion of a NYC-based chain to Boston blew up into one of the most well-known and successful fast-casual (or â€œfine-fast,â€? as they like to describe themselves) new restaurants in Boston. Which brings up the question â€” how did they do that and what can you learn from their success?
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".
