The Social Media tidal wave is gaining momentum, are you prepared?

Erik Deckers blogged about unacceptable words

I can’t find the original post, but I read something on Erik Decker’s Blog, Laughing Stalk regarding words that should be banished due to their OVERUSE. From Erik’s blog, I went to the original article published on LSSU’s website.

Before announcing the offensive 17 or so words, the last paragraph in the original article states,

“In this spirit, LSSU presents its 2008 list, a PERFECT STORM of overused and abused words and phrases that POPS ORGANICS, to a POST 9 /11 world DECIMATED by WEBINARS.”

In the above paragraph, the words in all caps were among the doomed 17. I’m just glad groovy wasn’t on the list =)

That got me thinking. The authors missed out on the following three sentences.

“Social Media participants” ARE THE NEW “Bloggers” and their SWEET and EMOTIONAL WORDSMITHING – well--- IT IS WHAT IT IS. Don’t throw them UNDER THE BUS just yet.

BACK IN THE DAY, before we knew about the BLACK FRIDAY—post-Thanksgiving SURGE, RANDOM articles AUTHORED by philosophers encouraged all to GIVE BACK .

I couldn’t fit the word WATERBOARDING in-- I just don’t like that word, anyhow.

I must admit, there are three I use: AUTHORED, SWEET—I love Napoleon Dynamite, and WORDSMITHING. Thanks for the post, Erik. That was fun.
