One of the key features of SAM is to make finding relevant social media content as quick and easy as possible. Wires provide a powerful method of searching multiple social networks for trending topics and filtering out excessive noise. Today, we’re improving on this core functionality with the addition of another powerful tool: time filtering.
While previous wires have made searching for breaking news expedient, there was no functionality which allowed a story to be easily put together from social media that had been posted in the preceding days. With time filtering, you can now specify a window of time up to seven days previous, making recaps of the prior week’s events or searching for time-sensitive content a snap. The time filter is also time zone aware, meaning searching for international news is just as straightforward as finding local content. Combined with the pre-existing suite of search and filtering tools in SAM Wires, finding relevant content is now easier than ever.
