I’m curious if anybody else has concluded that “share” has become the most annoying euphemism of the moment.
As in, “Hi, I thought I’d share with you this article — it’s all about me!”
Or, “Hi, I wanted to share with you this announcement about my new project, which I think you should share with your readers!”
Or, “Hi, I just had to share with you my blog post about how social-network marketing replaces trad-media interruption tactics with sharing. Please share my post with everyone in your social network!”
I find that the word share has basically come to mean tell, announce, blurt, broadcast, impose up on you, etc.
I just wanted to share that thought.
If you have thoughts, you are more than welcome to tell me.
