Last week we polled our users to find out the top buzzwords they are tired of hearing. We received over 70 different words you should consider the next time you get technical.
Top Three Buzzwords
‘At the end of the day…’
At the end of the day, it’s time to stop using repetitive and empty idioms. Over 20% of respondents confessed they are tired the phrase.
Landing at a close second, 17% of you said it’s time to stop talking about ‘leverage’ for everything. Not only a overused term, but often used out of context.
It should come as little surprise that synergy squeaked into the top three. The phrase is commonly misused and misunderstood in the business context.
Looks like Miley Cyrus has permeated deeper than we thought. Barely missing the top 3, it’s safe to say we are ready to see this trend fade out.
@hootsuite game changer!! Moving forward!!
