De-duplicating Content in Your Alerts

Filter syndicated content out of your mentions feed

When an article is syndicated across multiple outlets, if you have an alert set that matches terms in that article, you'll receive mentions for each article from each source by default.

This can result in multiple instances of the same article from different sources, making your mentions feed cluttered and difficult to navigate. 

The de-duplication filter can make your feed more easily digestible. 

When this feature is applied, a single newswire that has been distributed across various channels will now be recognized as duplicated content, and will only appear once in your alerts feed.
