Filtering Media Posts

Defensive Publications Series, Technical Disclosure Commons (2015)

Abstract

A social media filtering system filters social media posts based on criteria specified by a user. The system receives a request from a user to hide social media posts associated with a specified criteria. The specified criteria can be location criteria, event criteria, person criteria, and/or time criteria. Further, the system identifies a set of social media posts on a social media website. Then, the system determines social media posts from the set of social media posts that meet the specified criteria. The system further modifies the set of social media posts by removing or otherwise hiding the social media posts that meet the specified criteria. The system presents the modified set of social media posts to the user.
