Do we need this new sense of “trending”? Not really, but, given the popularity of “trendy” as an index of value in our consumer culture, it was probably inevitable.

    Trending is horrible word I first heard on every news channel for the first time about 9 months ago. It’s just another lame word made up by the Facebook/twitter losers when there was no need for it. It’s for people that can’t form a freaking sentence and those that pander to them. I’ve been disgusted by this (and people that post without punctuation or with all initial word caps) for a long time. Conversated ain’t no nothing word neither.

    I couldn’t agree MORE with Dude! I can’t decide which is WORSE…. the sound of fingernails on a chalk-board of hearing the news announcers types use the word “trending”

    Agree with Dude and John.
    Isn’t news either news or not? How does it trend? Local news casters used the abominable word trending six times in 90 seconds as lead-ins to what is really happening. I am trending to get impatience.
