Words in a new world

Words are so interesting! I was chatting with a friend and he asked me why aren't there any blog posts on my blog since the last few days? Before I could answer, he said are you going through a blogger's block? Interesting, ain't it?

Internet has made everyone a writer. The very idea that anyone can write and share her opinions via blogs, twitter, Facebook, and other channels has made this world an interesting one.

It made me think, what are such words which have developed newly due to the entire advent of Web and social media. These are the couple of words that I have come across which I never learnt in school and I am not really sure if they are in any dictionary yet:
  • Blogger's block
  • Content Crafters
  • Information Developers (I am one)
  • Crowdsourcing
  • Tweeting 
  • Facebook-ing
Have you come across any such words?
