Kool New Words from the New Mobile World OrderSeptember 21, 2010
I had the pleasure of presenting at the Multifamily Brainstorming Sessions with my friend and sister in all things marketing, Casey VanZandt. As Vice President of Marketing for Campus Advantage, Casey is in touch with the new lingo so that she can understand the trends of her target market. During our session, we shared the following definitions:
An intentionally vague Facebook status update that prompts friends to ask what’s going on, or is possibly a cry for help.
Phrase used before one inadvertently says something that sounds stalkerish on Facebook.
It’s the perfect response when you haven’t been listening at all.
Someone who texts on their cell phone in really inappropriate places, like movie theaters, concerts, plays, etc.
When you go to watch a quick 30 second video on YouTube and regain consciousness hours later having jumped from interesting video to interesting video.
A breathalyzer attached to your computer and/or cell phone whose sole purpose is to prevent you from sending messages.
Phantom Vibration Syndrome
You answer your vibrating phone only to find out it was never vibrating.
Please note, many of these words will not clear your spell check!
