Slang becomes a recognized language to be translated and studied

Implications - With social media making online lingo acceptable in everyday dialogue, it is not surprising that other types of slang are becoming more widely accepted and used by pop culture-savvy marketers. Marketers are recognizing that in order to communicate effectively with a certain demographic, they must use the appropriate vernacular, which gives rise to dictionaries and translators that educate on informal types of speech.
