Here's the description for the 13 dimensions available in Adaptive Listening post rule:

3 Content lets you input a specific word or phrase you’d like to identify within posts, or check a post to see if it matches a preconfigured boolean query. It uses names of each keyword created, so it’s important to name your keywords something that best describes what content it’s capturing.

4 Display Name lets you choose content from users based on the name they’ve chosen to be shown on their account. This can be anything the user wants, including “Willy Wonka.” If all your brand employee social accounts use a similar naming structure, this can be a useful tool for finding them.
