Accelerate: How to write effective Boolean

What it will cover:

‘How to write effective Boolean’ is a new course for those  who want to or are already using Boolean for social listening purposes. It is designed to provide an insight into writing boolean strings, rather than a surface-level insight into boolean more generally. After this session, you will be able to:

  • Understand when, and with which platforms, boolean can be used
  • Confidently write quick, effective boolean strings
  • Confidently write boolean for specific and broad searches
