Difference between Issue and Bug

I am inspired by a foreign programmer ( - who has started this program - Not So Stupid Question Series.

Today, I start with Questions: I have raised or got by/to fellow testers/friends in Software Industry.

Not so Stupid Questions 1 - Difference between Issue and Bug

I have listened to this many of the times, programmers/testers use the terms without knowingly, the meaning of it and when to use them. This got me thinking to write about it.

There are many definitions, on the internet. But from the day i started my career as testing - I have been following these definitions.

Bug:  The problem in the product/feature you developed bugs me -  (Me a.k.a  - first user to use before the customer). Its due to error, flaw, mistake, failure, or fault in a computer program or product. 
The term - Bug is often used by internal people in the company.

Issue: The problem in the product/feature found de-values the product and which can accomplish an improvement in a system. An Issue can also be a Bug.
The term - Issue is often used by clients. 

But, Testers can use both the words (Bug or Issue) - depending on the context or the terminology used in the organization.

Whatever terminology we say - Finally we need to build better, make better software, and impress the users. 

**Please let me know your thoughts.
