Acording to the "The New Oxford American Dictionary"  the 2009 Word of the Year is Unfriend.   Now that everybody is on Social Media, FaceBook, Twitter, Linked-In etc. it is a word with which we should be familiar.

 

Dictionary Picks 'Unfriend' As Word Of The Year : NPR

 

Source: www.npr.org
The New Oxford American Dictionary's 2009 Word of the Year can trace its origins back to the 17th century. The word: "unfriend." Christine Lindberg, senior lexicographer at Oxford University Press, says the Oxford English Dictionary provides a citation for "unfriend" from 1659.

 

And if you are a "social media-ite you already know the word.  You know what causes people to pull the unfriend trigger too.  We all know the people who feel you have to know their every move;  

  • I just woke up, 
  • Toast is in the toaster 
  • Great sunny day
  • Toast just popped up
Or the shameless self promotion version;
  • Showing Houses to great clients
  • Considering three choices
  • Writing an offer
  • Faxing an offer to the listing agent
  • Negotiating the offer now
Don't be that Realtor that everybody hides or unfriends.  Social Media is first and foremost social and it isn't about just you.

My own teenage daughter won't "friend" me does that mean that she "unfriended" me?

Well said about those we all know and "hide".  I personally don't have other agents as friends.  I want my friend/clients to know what I'm doing not what other agents are doing duh!

I am typing a comment.  now you are causing me to think about whether i am guilty of the above.  But not to worry, I am one of those people who will friend almost anyone.  :)  and the shameless self promotion?  i think I have been called on that as well.  Checking the spelling now.

It matters to us as much as it matters to you.

Lee, you are NOT guilty, I always find your posts and replies interesting and informative without the obvious promotions.  Julie, you are right about the politics, and you are a trouble maker too, because you goad me into the political comments.  Michael, I know we are friends on FB but rarely see you post there.  Linda, when the kids get older, they don't mind friending you, but are you up to it then?  Mine are all grown and it is one of the best ways to stay up on each other.

Lee, lets get working on your photo for your comments.

I guess I've got the mix right so far, because I haven't been unfriended!  Good post.  Thanks.
