Filter by content length?


Is there a way in the interaction target to filter out content that is over a certain length?

Also, oddly, for facebook I see “facebook.og.length” that is surfaced as a string so you can’t (for example) filter on posts that are less than a certain length? Or is there some way to make that happen that I’m not seeing?


You can use regular expressions in your CSDL to accomplish this. Some examples of what can be done can be found in the Regular Expressions blogpost.


Thanks Jason; Maneesh Bhide @ DataSift replied to me in an email with the same advice and I’ve verified that a regular expression does the job nicely (e.g. “.{1,400}”. Thank you!
