Drumroll 🥁 please …. Without further ado your 1st Boolean Scenario: 


With the holidays right around the corner the public relations team at Rockefeller Center in New York City is preparing to monitor social media posts from people traveling to New York City to view the upcoming 🎄Tree Lighting 🎄. The team wants to remove any negative and/or angry 😡 mentions as the posts will be shared in real time on a ticker at the tree lighting. The team would also like to exclude their own Instagram (@rockefellercenter) and Twitter (@rockcenternyc) posts.


What Boolean do you suggest? Reply with your boolean string suggestion on this thread. Remember - No Peeking 🧐

Note: I will share the recommended Boolean with you via Private Message after your entry. 

Don’t forget to join the Boolean Academy Wizards Group!  You can practice your boolean skills before entry plus check out additional training resources to help you out in the competition. 

Who’s ready to compete

Good luck!

Given this is likely still going to be a high volume of content for the ticker, you could also provide an option for the client to increase the quality of content showing by adding additional filters such as:

  • attachmentType:image
  • attachmentType:video 
  • shares>50
  • enrichments.socialScores.fb_shares>50
  • enrichments.socialScores.tw_shares>50
  • likes > 50
