Introducing The Junkipedia Monitoring System

A short tour of Junkipedia's monitoring interface

The Junkipedia monitoring system allows users to view content from a number of mainstream and alternative social media platforms (as well as podcasts), without having to log into the platforms directly:

  • Bitchute

  • Facebook*

  • Gab


  • Instagram*

  • OK

  • Parler

  • Rumble

  • Telegram

  • TikTok

  • Truth Social

  • Twitter

  • VK

  • YouTube

*via the CrowdTangle API

Just like you can create lists of users to follow on Twitter or CrowdTangle, Junkipedia users can create lists of accounts from these platforms, as well as lists of hashtags or search terms. The monitoring system pulls this content into a single unified feed within Junkipedia for easy monitoring.

Manage Your Monitoring Lists

Users will first want to create lists to monitor, import a CrowdTangle list to follow, or follow public lists created by other users.

Once you've created or followed lists, content should appear in your main monitoring feed at You can select which lists to view from the dropdown labeled “lists” at the top of the page.

In the main feed, you will see all of the posts associated with your lists. Check or uncheck lists in the dropdown to include or exclude their content from the main feed.

Search, Sort, and Filter Content

At the top, you'll see several ways to search, sort, and filter content in the main feed.

Enter any term into the search bar to surface posts that contain that word. If you are following any YouTube channel lists, the system will also search the YouTube videos' automated transcripts for the term, in addition to title and description text. Junkipedia will also automatically transcribe audio from TikTok videos and podcasts and search those transcripts for your terms.

You can also sort posts by newest, oldest, engagement (posts with the most views, likes, comments, shares will appear first), and random.

There are also several ways of filtering content:

  • Platform: Select a platform from the dropdown menu to see only content from that particular platform.

  • Age: Select a date parameter from the dropdown menu to see only content created within that time frame. For example, if I only wanted to see content published within the last week, I would select "Last 7 Days."

  • Post Type: Select photo, video, link, status, document, audio, or podcast to see only posts that contain that type of content.

  • Language: Select a language from the dropdown to see posts only in that language.

  • Engagement: Select a value from the dropdown menu to see only content that has received at least that much engagement. For example, if I only want to see content that has received more than 1,000 views/ likes/ comments/ shares, I would select ">1K."

  • Exclude: Exclude certain kinds of content from appearing in your feed, for example replies, posts, and advertisements.

  • Transcripts: Select “No Transcript” or “Has Transcript” to include/exclude video posts with or without a transcript.

  • Add Filters: Add additional custom filters that allow you to filter channels by categories like U.S. state, political party, or candidate status.

Monitor Content

You can view content, including video, directly within the main monitoring feed. If you would like to view the original post, click the platform logo on the upper left of the post. At the bottom of the post, you'll see all of the available engagement data: likes, shares ("forwards"), comments, and views. A blue arrow next to the engagement data indicates the post is a reply.

Add Content to Junkipedia

If you've found a post you'd like to add to Junkipedia, click the arrow at the top of the post and then select “Add as tip.”

Channel Page

The channel page will give you additional information about a specific channel or account you've added to a monitoring list. To view a channel's page, simply click their channel name in any post.

The channel page displays the channels name, a link to the channel, any lists the channel belongs to, when the channel was first created, the total number of posts the channel has published, a description (if they've created one), and overall channel engagement data (total subscribers/likes, total views, total posts published, total comments), and whether or not the channel is currently public. Beneath, you'll see a feed of all posts published by the channel.
