Query filtering

  1. Filter to shares which mention a particular company:

    li.subtype == "activity|share" AND ||.||.company_names == "Samsung"

  2. Filter to shares which mention companies that match any of a set of keywords:

    li.subtype == "activity|share" AND ||.||.company_names contains_any "Apple, Huawei, Samsung"

    Note that because the target is tokenized the contains_any operator can be used. This means that company names containing any of the keywords will be matched, such as Samsung UK.

Analysis

You can use this target to analyze the companies that are mentioned in shares and engagements.

  1. Analyze the companies mentioned in shares:

    "filter": "li.subtype == \"activity|share\"",
    "parameters": {
        "analysis_type": "freqDist",
        "parameters": {
            "target": "||.||.company_names",
            "threshold": 10
        }
    }

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