How the networking revolution has redefined our language | A NOTE FROM THE FOUNDER

How the networking revolution has redefined our language

by Adam J. Kovitz

Networking has taken a big leap over the past several years and has become more commonplace within our lives, with a vast plethora of social media tools available to us - many of them free.  In the wake of this revolution, media giants have risen and fallen, along with some governments as well, and an entire generation has grown up in an era like no other.

It's no wonder then that recently the 12th Edition of the Oxford Concise Dictionary was released (commemorating its 100 years of linguistic existence) and 400 new words were introduced.

Among the new words, are several that are a direct result of the networking revolution, for better or worse - take a look:

cyberbullying: n. the use of electronic communication to bully a person, typically by sending messages of an intimidating or threatening nature.
retweet: v. (on the social networking service Twitter) repost or forward (a message posted by another user). n. a reposted or forwarded message on Twitter.
sexting: n. informal the sending of sexually explicit photographs or messages via mobile phone.
textspeak: n. language regarded as characteristic of text messages, consisting of abbreviations, acronyms, initials, emoticons, etc..
woot: exclam. informal (especially in electronic communication) used to express elation, enthusiasm, or triumph.

These words join previous new entries "LOL" and "OMG" (added in February, 2011) that indicate a highly-connected, high-speed world filled with 140-character info blasts to our friends, customers, clients, connections, etc.

So for those of you networking lingui-files out there who obsess over games like Scrabble and Boggle, you have some neat new words to add to your repertoire, backed by the one hundred-year, rock-solid reputation of the Oxford English Dictionary.  

Yet one more way to appreciate the world of networking - viva la revolution!

All my best,
