AP Stylebook Changes

Sunday, April 18, 2010

There's a fun article at Poynter Online which is very timely for us "BNR" students. It talks about recent changes made to the AP Stylebook at the American Copy Editors Society (ACES) conference last Friday afternoon.

When the AP Stylebook announced via Twitter that it was changing the style for "Web site" to "website," some users let out shouts of praise: "Finally!" "Yes!" "Yeeha!"

The reactions aren't surprising given how many people have asked AP to change the style from two words to one word, arguing "Web site" is an antiquated way of writing it.

The 2010 AP Stylebook comes out next month.

It shows just how social media is impacting everything. I mean they announced on Twitter. I was never a fan a Twitter but now I am close to an addict. It is interesting why exactly it is able to change like this though.
