‘Unfriend’: Oxford Dictionary’s Word of the Year

First we had Roger Clemens and his use of misremembers, and now the New Oxford American Dictionary has chosen unfriend as its Word of the Year.

The dictionary defines unfriend this way:

 "To remove someone as a ‘friend’ on a social networking site such as Facebook."

What next, "I unlove you and want a divorce"?
