This UXDiscuss will look at whether the term UX is being devalued. UX has reached the stage where it is being attached to seemingly unrelated topics, is this a sign that UX is being devalued as a term or that it is gaining more widespread recognition as a term to be appropriated?

The #uxdiscuss event will be held on 25th February 2016 (25/02/2016) at 1pm UK time (8am Eastern US).

The questions we will be discussing are:

  1. Do you feel that the term UX is being overused to the point of being devalued?
  2. What’s the most tenuous connection you’ve seen UX being attached to?
  3. Is it a problem that UX is used more and more? Or a sign of wider adoption?

The questions will be posted to Twitter via @uxdiscuss using the hashtag #uxdiscuss and all you have to do is join in.

We look forward to seeing you then!
