'Tis the season for turkey, untangling Christmas lights, and mega shopping sales. When it comes to buying for your children, the sales seem especially hard to resist. Whether it's footed pajamas, toys, or the latest Disney princess, all parents are in a hurry to get their kids what they'll need (and love) while saving a few bucks. Which means if you've ever looked at a single Instagram account, you've probably had your eye on the Freshly Picked moccasins for kids.
If there was one thing that made you the envy of the playground in my day, it was having an American Girl doll. My friends and I pored over every catalogue that came out (back then, there were only five dolls and like half of them are retired now) and chose our favorites. Of course, mine was Samantha, but all of the dolls are amazing and I can't wait until my daughter is old enough for some. But if you're already shopping, you'll want to know what to buy at the American Girl Black Friday 2017 sale.
One browse through your Instagram feed and you're most likely going to stumble over a few things — someone's house decorated entirely in white, a food snapshot, and an adorable baby in a delicious pair of moccasins. Freshly Picked is the company behind those sweet moccasins and their collection of metallics, of fringed moccasins, and of tiny bow moccasins have quickly become a favorite of parents all over the world, including celebrities like Gwen Stefani and Jessica Alba.
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".
