social media + mainstream culture



Found this image on Blog Out Loud and had to share!  Another case in point, Oxford Dictionary's word of the year is unfriend.

Un.friend  verb; to remove someone as a "friend" on a social networking site such as Facebook.

The thing I find confusing is shouldn't it be called re-unfriend? I mean think about it....

The reason you didn't keep in touch with half these people in the first place was because at some point in your life you realized they weren't enough in the inner circle or you didn't have the time to stay in touch and unfriended them then.  So if you do it again....

Just my thought of the day!
