Do you speak this language?
Posted by Richard Scudder
The first eight acronyms I bet you know because it’s 2014 and you’ve either heard or read them with enough frequency whether you’re still holding onto your aol.com email address or you communicate more with an @ in front of your name.
DM, FB, G+, IG, ISP, LI, RT and SM
Now if you know 100% of the next eight acronyms there is hope that you’ve not yet been left behind or totally out of the loop.
CPC, CTR, ESP, KPI, PPC, RSS, SaaS and SEO
Now for extra credit if you’re 16 of 16 how about…API, CMGR, RTD, UGC.
This isn’t about going 10 for 20 or 20 for 20, but it is to remind us there is social media language that is now spoken across all business lines and all levels of the organization. It’s no longer kept inclusive to the IT or marketing department.
DM – Direct Message, FB – Facebook, G+ – Google Plus, IG – Instagram, LI – Linkedin, RT – Retweet and SM – Social Media
CPC – Cost Per Click, CTR – Click Through Rate, ESP – Email Service Provider, KPI – Key Performance Indicator, PPC – Pay Per Click, RSS – Really Simple Syndication, SaaS – Software as a Service and SEO – Search Engine Optimization.
API – Application Program Interface, CMCR – Community Manager, RTD – Real Time Data and UGC – User Generated Content
