The Associated Press Stylebook, aka “the journalist’s bible”, have released their 2011 guide and have included some new social media terms, including Twitter-friendly words and phrases such as geolocation, stream, link Shortener and unfollow.
Other additions for 2011 are end user and geotagging.
The stylebook is a style and usage guide favoured by newspapers, reporters, broadcasters, magazines and public relations firms in the United States, but is also highly influential throughout the world.
The latest entries were revealed in a tweet from the official @APStylebook Twitter profile late yesterday.
Last year the AP added trending, retweet and unfriend to their guide.
The Stylebook is available now and costs $19.99, and is also downloadable as an app for iPhone and Blackberry handsets.
