30 YEARS AGO, THESE WORDS DIDN'T EXIST


By Vernalee

As Yahoo celebrates over 25 years of business, so does the integration of 20 new words that prior to 1995 did not exist. Let's glance 5 of them.

Blog – Blogs permit us to read about topics and provide comments. Thank you for following my blog, "www.StuffWeTalkAbout.com."

Selfie - Use your cell, take a photo of yourself, and send abroad - if you desire.

Text - What would we do without text messaging? How clever to use our phones to write messages rather than talk!

Tweet - This is one of my favorites. Messages are limited to 140 characters; short and sweet. It's time for another commercial. Follow me on twitter@stufwetalkabout, #swta, #Vernalee.

Viral - Although I am not very technologically savvy, it would be great to have one of my messages go viral for tons of people to see! Just saying ...

Although "Friend" is not a new word, how many friends do you have on Facebook? Though the relationship intimacy of the word, Friend, got "lost in the sauce" on Facebook, counting our Facebook friends and likes is the new thing! Instagram is "boss!" And the list goes on ...

Yes, Yahoo ... has definitely changed our communication lives for sure!
