The most useful posts of November 2009

November 2009. The language changed along with reality. The New Oxford American Dictionary announced its Word Of The Year: unfriend (verb) To remove someone as a 'friend' on a social networking site such as Facebook. A few days later the Global Language Monitor determined that 'Twitter' was the top word of 2009. In New York lawyers used a Facebook status update to keep one person out of jail but the outcome was different for a British fugitive who felt obligated to text the newspapers a better mug shot than the one the police were distributing. A Facebook user boasted about crashing a White House Dinner and meeting Barack Obama, a Twitter user with 2.7 million followers who admitted this month that he had never actually used the service. As a year unlike no other was slowly drawing to a close, web marketers turned to these posts as the most useful of the month.
