Gossip - all humans partake in some form, despite the age-old adage, "If you have nothing nice to say, don't say anything at all.” Whether it's workplace chatter, the sharing of family news or group texts between friends, it's inevitable that everyone who talks, well, talks about other people. People tend to think of gossip as synonymous with malicious rumors. However, researchers often characterize it as an integral part of conversation, information sharing and even community building.
