We have compiled terms and their definitions from different digital technologies. You will find that some terms are linked with others which will be highlighted in the text or end with a “See” link. If you see a terminology that we have not covered please let us know — contact us. We also review, update and add new terms on a quarterly basis. We hope this helps you in getting more digital savvy.

Tag

Using keywords, hashtags, or social media names to let a person, subject, or idea know that you’re talking about them, with them, or to them. If you want your post to show up on another user’s feed, you write their social media name with an @ symbol ahead of it so they become "tagged". If you’re using hashtags, incorporate the hashtag in your post.

Timeline

On Facebook, where all posts, images, and tagged posts are kept in reverse chronological order, organized by year. Users can search through timelines to find previous posts.

Token

Tokens are the digital equivalent of claims on an underlying asset (like the gold), that you need to claim from a specific issuer (the goldsmith). The transactions as tokens get passed between people are recorded on the blockchains, and to claim the underlying asset, you send your token to the issuer, and the issuer sends you the underlying asset.
