Mentions and links


will this filter with an @mention and url return anything?

fb.all.content ANY “@cvs,


Good question.

You will match any interactions with a link with this filter, however it is not possible to filter user mentions (e.g. @cvs). Any user mentions are stripped out by Facebook before the content is filtered by DataSift.

Note that the links targets may be better suited for filtering urls: you’ll also be able to match interactions in the case where the link has been shortened, but resolves to the link/domain you’re interested in (not possible when filtering links via fb.all.content).


Good to know, thanks!
