"The word 'disruption' won, both because of its excessive volume in digital marketing and the tech world in general and also its betrayal of the very concept it represents," Sean Callahan, Senior Manager, Content Marketing, LinkedIn wrote in a blog post on Monday. Pixabay

Microsoft-owned job seeking platform LinkedIn has announced that the word “disruption” was the most over used industry buzzword.

Besides “disruption”, other buzzwords like “Cloud-based”, “value-add”, “scalable”, “authentic” and “bandwidth” also emerged as the most over-used industry buzzwords, according to LinkedIn’s list.



“We wanted to put our own twist on the bracket sensation this year, so we thought about what drives us mad as marketers and it didn’t take long for an answer to emerge — buzzwords,” Callahan said. Pixabay

“The word ‘disruption’ won, both because of its excessive volume in digital marketing and the tech world in general and also its betrayal of the very concept it represents,” Sean Callahan, Senior Manager, Content Marketing, LinkedIn wrote in a blog post on Monday.

The job-seeking platform released its “Marketing Madness: Buzzword Beaters” list for the first time this year in a bracket format, dividing the contending words into regions — Jargon, Balderdash, Banality and Cliche.

Apart from humour, LinkedIn’s idea behind listing this bracket was to highlight over-used words and phrases which can narrow thinking processes, strategies and plans into the regular universally defined small boxes, the post noted.

“We put together this bracket mainly as a way to have a couple laughs and poke fun at ourselves,” Callahan added. “But there is also a very legitimate rationale for being conscious of our inclination to fall back on the same old cliched jargons.” (IANS)

India has been ranked 139 out of 149 countries in the list of UN World Happiness Report 2021.

According to the World Happiness Report 2021 which was released by the UN Sustainable Development Solutions Network, Finland was once again crowned as the world's happiest country. India has been ranked 139 out of 149 countries in the list of UN World Happiness Report 2021. To make society happy, firstly it is really important to spread awareness on how it is okay to relax, chill and take a break. People tend to normalise overworking, which is so wrong. Of Course, we need a job to live and sustain ourselves but you shouldn't be working yourself to death, and the fact that this is seen as normal is really worrying. You spend more hours at work than you do awake at home, so if those hours are drenched in misery then sadness basically becomes the norm. A study from Gallup (2017) found that happier employees were more engaged, which resulted in improved customer relationships, and a 20 percent increase in sales.

Also, lowering down the crime level would act as a major factor towards a happy society. People who witness crimes, or come across evidence of a crime in their local area, can suffer anxiety and may feel demoralised or powerless. We should also teach them to stop judging people by materialistic things and accept everyone with all their flaws. Media plays an important role in making society happy because they have the power of reaching out to billions of people and helping them out through a solution-based approach.
