All of the tech talk and social media jargon that has penetrated the English language has served to change the previously accepted definitions of many common words as pointed out in the 'Technically Speaking' infographic by Lebara Mobile.

First and foremost, the chart looks at endangered tech terms that could potentially disappear forever; even terms as simple as "click" may no longer be used due to the rise of touch-screen devices. Then there are the words whose meanings have changed altogether such as "piracy" and "thread," demonstrating a new mode of technologically-integrated cultural thought.

Finally, the 'Technically Speaking' infographic predicts future terminology with a focus on up-and-coming tech products and services that will become everyday necessities.
