The title or headline of a web page external to Facebook for which a link is shared in a story.

For example, suppose that the text of a story is:

"You have to read this!"

This shortened link expands to:

The HTML <title> of that page is "IMDb - Movies, TV and Celebrities" and it appears as a string in links.title.


  1. Filter for stories that contain links to external pages that have "Zuckerberg" in their title:

    links.title contains "Zuckerberg"

  2. If you use this target in analysis queries titles are truncated to 256 characters. Here is a sample call:

curl -X POST 
    -d ' { "id": "1f42c40be4446f63aa0c5008ab7f700e", "parameters": { "analysis_type": "freqDist", "parameters": { "threshold": 10, "target": "links.title" } }, "start": "1447675740" } ' 
    -H 'Authorization: id:api_key' 
    -H "Content-type: application/json"
