Are you having a tough time even getting down the lingo of the online world? Do you want your company to always be able to effectively put its best “site-face” forward so to speak?…We all know it’s challenging to keep up with the new terms and acronyms in the online world.
However, no matter what size your company is or what arena you’re working in, it’s always a good idea to be able to toss around at least a couple of generally used online terms or acronyms confidently. Why you ask?
Because you’ve probably got a web site or will have one for your company. More and more offline publications are repurposing their content for their sister online sites and you’ll have at some point a wonky journalist who gets a kick out of using a bunch of acronyms and web terms during their interviews with you.
For instance, as a journalist, I’m constantly writing up new index cards filled with words and terms to apply in my work and I’ve found that one of the best resources for understanding and effectively using online terminology is NetLingo.com.
Founded by Erin Jansen the site was garnered numerous kudos and has been reviewed and heraled in prestigious pubs like PC Magazine, The New York Times, CNN, Fortune Magazine, and USA Today.
According to the web site, digital versions of NetLingo.com are available as an e-book or PDF, and Top 20 lists and PDF articles are available for download on the Web site.
