Why it is Hip to Like Grammar

computer-clipart-black-and-white-computer-clip-art-black-and-white-i10Maybe it is just me, but the liking of proper grammar seems to be more popular now than it ever was. We have self-appointed “Grammar Nazis” and “Grammar Police” patrolling the Internet and pointing out mistakes. Sometimes these educational moments are not as polite as one would hope.

Why now?

Simple. This is proof that the Internet is still a content game, not an image one. As we discussed in Images are King, but Content is Queen keywords, tagging, descriptions and titles still rule the world, or at least blogging and social media. Even with the advancement of image-heavy social media outlets, the content is what drives the site, even if behind the scenes.

Do people call one another? No, they text. They instant message. They chat. They use their words. Yes, abbreviations are popular and some messages are just images or emoticons, but in the thick of it all, the words win. Grammar wins. Or those grammar folks are at least giving images and writing mistakes a run for their money.
