Word Up.

The Phoenix Business Journal had a small article this week about Cramer Krasselt releasing an annual “cultural dictionary” to keep their employees and clients up-to-date on the new slang. The terms were garnered from the Web, blogs and conversations. And let’s not forget text messages.

Some of the highlights:

  • “Faceslam” — to ignore or deny a friendship request on Facebook or social network.
  • “Smexting” — smoking and texting
  • “infosnacking” — wasting time at work by surfing the Web

Take that Merriam-Webster!
