There is a buzz that Facebook is working on a software that will be building a dictionary of slang terms used on the FB . The software will search for unique words used in Facebook posts and comments, and try to find if these words have a particular meaning among a small group of people .
“The software will look for the repeated use of particular words among users who share certain attributes, like language and location. Once the software has determined that a neologism isn’t yet largely associated with a particular definition, it will add the word to a glossary of terms.” according to the patent filing
It’s a great news for FB users all over world . But it will help to tackle the generation gap as it’s difficult for elders to understand the slangs used by present generation . This will also help people from different parts of world to understand each other’s slang .
