In the spirit of the recent Oxford Dictionary of English announcement about the introduction of “tweetup” into their dictionary, I thought it was time to develop a word for someone who has a presence all over the internet.
Noun – A polyweb is a person who has an online presence across many different websites.
Needless to say, I’m a prime example…
- davereinhardt.com – my general blog (this site)
- Touring with Teddybok – Travels with a Saffa snapper
- My Mobilestream – Interesting things I see when out and about
Profiles on social networking sites
Contributions I’ve made / profiles on sites where I’ve generated content
- Articles I’ve written on The Next Web
- Blog comments on Disqus
- TripAdvisor reviews
- Polls on Polldaddy
And I shouldn’t leave out Retaggr, an aggregator of profiles.
That’s just off the top of my head. I’m sure if I gave it some thought, I could find a few dozen more sites that I’ve tried out for a few days and left behind.
Should we mount a campaign for inclusion in next year’s new words list? Let me know what you think in the comments.
