Google is a verb. Nobody looks at you strangely if you say “I Googled it.” I believe I started hearing Google used as a verb almost exactly two years ago, although I’m sure it was around for much longer.
So MarquisdeJolie posts the following… will we be saying “I YouTubed a Video” in a few years?
I see YouTube videos on morning news programs more and more regularly. It’s the OughtSix version of ‘Xeroxing’. People who can’t even figure out how to navigate a blogsite or forward an email… know that if you make a video, you show it on YouTube. That’s the official franchise, isn’t it? A few years from now, the term ‘viral video’ will become obscure. The act of making internet videos will be called U-Tubing just like the act of making copies is called xeroxing. Have you U-Tubed on Revver lately?
