The Unfriendly

26 November 2009, Thursday Leave a comment Go to comments

Apparently “Unfriend” is the New Oxford English word of the year. It means to remove or delete someone from an online social network such as Facebook or Friendster.

Webster’s has a more archaic definition for it though, but the term is flexible enough to be contextual.

Unfriend
Un*friend”\, n. One not a friend; an enemy.
[R.] –Carlyle.

More after the jump.

‘Unfriend’ is New Oxford American word of the year Link via Yahoo news Singapore.
