Query filtering

  1. Filter to shares of an article with a specific url:

    li.subtype == "activity|share" AND ||.||.url == "http://www.nytimes.com/2016/07/27/technology/apple-earnings-iphone-sales.html"

  2. Filter to shares of articles whose urls contain a certain path:

    li.subtype == "activity|share" AND ||.||.url contains_any "http://www.nytimes.com/pages/technology"

    This filter will match any urls that begin with http://www.nytimes.com/pages/technology.

Analysis

You can use this target to analyze the urls of articles being shared and engaged with.

  1. Analyze the urls of articles being shared:

    "filter": "li.subtype == \"activity|share\"",
    "parameters": {
        "analysis_type": "freqDist",
        "parameters": {
            "target": "||.||.url",
            "threshold": 20
        }
    }

    Notice that here a query filter is used to filter to articles posted in shares.

  2. Analyze the urls of articles where the title contains any of a set of keywords:

    "filter": "||.||.title contains_any \"Apple, Yahoo\"",
    "parameters": {
        "analysis_type": "freqDist",
        "parameters": {
            "target": "||.||.url",
            "threshold": 20
        }
    }

    Notice that here a query filter is used to filter to articles with the keywords.
