As people have an ongoing issue with the use of the phrase User Generated Content(UGC), I would like to propose an alternative – Digital Online Content (DOC).
No one gets up in the morning and says “Today I shall create some User Generated Content!”
But it’s not beyond the bounds of possibilities to get to grips with – “Today I shall create some Digital Online Content!”
The joy of this is that you can then have derivatives such as:
DOCument – an idea, image or sound.
DOCumented – an idea, image or sound recorded in history.
DOCumentor – the author of an idea, image or sound.
DOCumenting – the act of recording an idea, image or sound.
Try it. Repeat it a couple of times and see how it feels. Then DOCument your response!
