The country name for the author.

This value is based on the "Current City" location listed by an author in their profile. An author with a "Current City" location of Chicago who is posting from a country outside the US will still have their stories available for filtering and fb.author.country will be United States for this author.

  1. Filter for stories about coffee from women who state they are in the US. The filter returns stories only because fb.content is not populated for engagements:

    fb.author.gender == "female" and fb.author.country == "United States" 
    and fb.content contains "coffee"

  2. Filter for engagements (likes, comments, and reshares) from women who state they are in the US for stories about coffee. The fb.author.gender and fb.author.country targets relate to the author of an engagement while the fb.parent.content holds the content of the story that is receiving the engagement:

    fb.author.gender == "female" and fb.author.country == "United States" 
    and fb.parent.content contains "coffee"
