Filters (ie. hedges) or search filters are defined as: "...a [single] search term or terms (such as 'randomi?ation' or 'random allocation' for RCTs) that select studies that are at the most advanced stages of testing for clinical application" (Wilczynski et al 1995, p436). In other words, " filters or hedges consist of a combination of terms, generally drawing on free-text, controlled vocabulary and metadata."

Note that many databases now use social media as a controlled term. In Medline, the MeSH social media was introduced in 2012. Blogging was introduced as a MeSH in 2010.
