    The requirements are kinda ambiguous !!
    Please update the contest :-
    - What do you mean by filter video ? Do you mean the filtering the posts and in case of posts, filter the title or the body or both ??
    - Search public content ? where exactly ? There are many content considered as "public" but only authorized (login in) users can access, while linkedlin provides something like : https://www.linkedin.com/learning/
    where you can search by skills, subject or software.

      Hi Ahmed - Thanks for your comment!

      1) It means that the program should allow us to choose the first string (filter) or more easily explained, what is written on the search bar and then collect that post and its link for us.

      2) Search public content on LINKEDIN.

      If any more doubts arise, please ask! Thanks a lot.
