An illustration of the new meaning of
the word “interactive” on the cover of
Newsweek Magazine May 31, 1993.
          Ano ang puwedeng katumbas ng salitang “interactive,” na may makabagong kahulugang patungkol sa kalakaran sa larangan ng computer at Internet, sa salitang Pilipino?
          Ang salitang English na “act” ay may tuwirang pagsasalin sa Wikang Pilipino na kilos, galaw o gawa. Samantalang ang “active” kung ililiwat ay maraming katumbas na kahulugan sa Wikang Pilipino: Buhay (o may buhay), kumikilos, gising, gumagalaw, gumagawa, may bisa, may pakinabang, nakikipag-ugnayan, tumutukoy, umiiral, atbp. Ang prefix naman na “inter” ay maaaring iliwat bilang katumbas ng salitang “ugnay” o “sugpong” sa isang banda at “iba” o “palit” sa kabilang banda. Isa pang katumbas nito ay ang salitang “pagitan.” Sa Wikang English, ito ay ginagamit upang ipahiwatig ang “pag-uugnayan” o “pag-iiba ng dalawa o higit pang mga bagay, gawa o pangyayari. Ilang halimbawa ay interagency (ugnayan ng mga sangay), intercourse (ugnayan sa pagitan ng mga bagay o tao), interchange (pagpapalitan sa pagitan ng mga bagay), at intermediate (pangyayari sa pagitan ng dalawang bagay).
          Sa salitang “interactive” na nangangahulugan ng kakayahang “makipagpalitang ugnayan” sa pagitan, halimbawa, ng computer at ng taong gumagamit nito, magagamit ang pagsasanib-salita ng “palit” at “ugnay” – palit-ugnay. Kaya ang pinakamalapit na pagliliwat ng salitang “interactive” ay “makakapagpalit-ugnayan.” Sa pagbuboo ng mga salita, ang maaaring ipanukala rito ay "palitugnay."

privacy)” on the cover of Time Magazine
May 31, 2010 issue.
Larawang Tribiya
          Umabot ng 500 million ang mga active members ng Facebook noong July 21, 2010. Sa ngayon (May 31, 2012) ay halos isang billion na ang registered users ng Facebook.
          Ang pelikulang The Social Network (2010) ay patungkol sa pagkakatatag ng Facebook. Ang script ay sinulat ni Aaron Sorkin batay sa aklat na sinulat ni Ben Mezrich noong 2009. Ayon kay Mark Zuckerberg, na founder ng Facebook, ang pelikula ay hindi makatotohanan. Walang sinoman na taga-Facebook ang nakasali sa pagbuo ng konsepto ng pelikula, bagama’t si Eduardo Saverin, isa sa mga co-founders ng Facebook, ay naging consultant sa pagbuo ni Mezrich ng kaniyang aklat.
