This is fascinating, isn't it? Any designer responsible for a product aimed for global consumption should be well aware of this research. I am interested in the development of these theories when it comes to development ages now that our youngsters are growing up in a more connected "globalized" digital information age.

How to Stop Jargon From Pulling the Plug Out of Your Powerful Content

How to Stop Jargon From Pulling the Plug Out of Your Powerful Content | User Experience and User Interaction | Scoop.it

You can't create clear, powerful content on a foundation of jargon.


Via Ally Greer

Ally Greer's curator insight, April 30, 2013 2:08 PM

No matter what industry you're working in, chances are there are lots of buzzwords consistently floating around. Social media and the Tech/Startup industries in particular are infamous for complicating every blogpost, business pitch, and general conversation with nonsense jargon.


Though using these types of words can give the impression of being knowledgeable and intelligent, when it really comes down to it, the audience eventually sees right through it.


This post references some implications of overusing jargon, including appearing as though you have nothing new to say, playing it "too safe." and making things up.


Yet, the burning question remains: how do we stop ourselves?


  • Channel your inner Warren Buffet: use plain English.
  • Go cold turkey: don't use jargon anywhere at all.
  • Use real examples.
  • Focus on bottom-line thinking.
