So like, we're all quite literally stressed af. Which is rough. But luckily, we have one thing to help us get by: memes. In honor of all things memes (and our desperate desire to escape from our everyday exhaustion), we're bringing you our absolute fave memes this week. Don't forget to follow us on Instagram for even more taggable memes, because whose day isn't made when their bff tags them in yet another all-too-relevant meme? Money is nice, but mimosas are better.
As the host of our weekly Face Mask & Chill segment on Instagram Stories, I own a LOT of face masks. Like, boxes on boxes. So it takes a lot to blow my mind when it comes to masks. But when I heard about the magnet masks taking over the internet, I knew I had to get my hands on one immediately to see what it could do for my very, very complicated skin. My relationship with my skin has always been a messy one. For a long time, my skin straight up sucked.
First things first: HAPPY 2018! In honor of the new year (and our desperate need for something to laugh at, because, lbr, 2017, was rough af), we're launching something new: our fave memes of the week. Because goodness knows we could use more good ol' fashioned laughter in the stress-filled dumpster fire that is our everyday lives. But actually. So cuddle up, get warm, & get ready to giggle. And don't forget to share, since we all know memes are best when you enjoy them with the group text.
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".
