Data Filtering

Relevance Refined

The vast quantity of social data being generated every second is overwhelming. To extract high quality insight, you need to rapidly discover and focus on only those conversations that are actually relevant. Addressing this challenge, our platform takes you far beyond simple keyword searches allowing you to filter data with precision - saving you time and data costs.

Go Beyond Keywords

Search more than 300 unique fields, such as author, location, language and demographics across dozens of social platforms.

Search Better

Use advanced operations such as regular expressions, contextual search, text pattern matching, substrings, and more to get the data that is most relevant.

Filter Multiple Sources

Save time by applying a single filter across multiple data sources, for both historical and real-time data filtering.
