"Unfriend" is now officially a word

The New Oxford American Dictionary named "unfriend" the word of the year - beating out such other social media terms like "hashtag" and "sexting". (There's always 2010, right?)

Oxford defined "unfriend" as a verb that means to remove someone as a "friend" on a social networking site such as Facebook.

I trooped down the hall to our WLRN-Miami Herald News partner studios to have a chat with Kenny Malone about unfriending. Kenny and I are pretty much always laughing together - so apologies for me laughing in the middle of this segment that aired this morning:
