This Offerpop graphic travels back in time to look at some of the most popular 2013 words and their reach across social media.

Some of these crazy words that took off online included phenomenons and phrases like "YOLO," "FOMO" (fear of missing out) and "cat bearding." Cronut, phubbing and listicle also made the list and are all examples of two words that have been mashed up into something new. It's no surprise to see that the word "selfie" also made this infographic, especially since it became an official addition to the dictionary last year.

As bizzarre as some of these words may seem, Offerpop provides some insight into what the makes these words so popular and how brands can leverage this information to connect with its target audience. Stats for Viral Lingo Infographics Trending: Older & Buzzing
