Tip: in many cases you will find that FourSquare 'check-ins' have been linked to Twitter accounts and appear in Twitter saved results. FourSquare s API does not allow us to save data p YouTube When searching YouTube keyword search terms apply to video title, description and all comments made on original video. This said, results may also include users from outside of the lens area with relevance to keyword in search p Facebook When searching the Facebook API a keyword search term is required. o If no results are found inside a lens radius; Facebook s API arbitrarily expands the search outside the pre-set lens until relevant results are found o Best Practice: Facebook searches are recommended to be saved as a separate profile.
