Internet slang is coined and popularized to save time on keystrokes.

Coined and Popularized By Internet Users

I learned that these slang terms were coined and popularized by those on the Internet to save time on keystrokes. The acronyms are also used in text messages, emails, blogs, forums, imageboards, instant messages, as well as on social networking sites such as Facebook.

Memes Evolving By Natural Selection

Some internet slang will also develop not just for the sake of saving time, but as identification by members of the same social internet grouping in which members feel loyal to. Members will repeatedly use an acronym (a common typing error that is eventually turned into slang, for example) and soon it catches on in the world wide web as slang. When slang develops that way, they are memes that are evolving by natural selection, much like in biological evolution.

Internet Slang is a New Language Developing

Today, young people are using Internet slang not only in written communication, but also in spoken communication. This truly is a sure sign of a language that is in the process of developing into a brand new language. Whilst the use of Internet slang saves time for the writer, the reader often may take more than twice the time to understand what the writer is trying to say this way.

      I use them sometimes, but I have not fucking ideas why these words are created. I don't believe anyone can even remember all of these words, and when people don't know about it, they gotta come back here or google it, would that be MUCH quicker if you type the whole word at the beginning = P

Thank you for sharing this, though. At least, I understand what they mean now and I don't feel so 'lost.' This is awesome!:-)

      This is fantastic - I thought I was pretty fluent in internet slang but there were a few that were new to me.

      I had a friend who though LOL meant 'lots of love' - that could have led to an awkward misunderstanding if they'd used it to sign off a serious or sad text or email... 'I'm sorry for your loss, LOL'!

      Thank you, the list is great. Except for one thing: Why do people need to curse to get their point across? It as bad as yelling to me. It is not appealing. Personally, when someone curses or yells not only do I get turned off I tune it out. I just don't use the ones with the curse words. Have a great day.

      OK - above list helps answers a few questions. I agree with the comment way above, that it takes longer to read than when people take the time to actually spell a word in full. I'm not that old, but it seems that all these acronyms show laziness rather than cleverness. Makes me wonder if it's easier to use the first letter of the word as most people don't know how to spell anymore.

      Mrs40sHistoryBuff 10 months ago

      I'm not going to read through several hundred posts to see if these things have already been addressed, so apologies to whomever may be annoyed if this duplicates their concerns....

      You listed "AFK" on the headline and the lead-in to your Hub, but in your dictionary it's never addressed. In my 16 years of keyboarding experience online - yes, since 1999 and all the Y2K hubbub - AFK has always meant "Away From Keyboard." Usually indicating an anticipated absence longer than would be covered by a simple "BRB."

      The other point I wanted to make is that a few of these have histories that go way back before the internet. Most especially, the entry you have of "MYOB" or "Mind Your Own Business." That's been a "verbal" shortcut for ALAIR! I remember hearing adults use that amongst themselves when I was a kid. And since that was about FIVE decades ago, plus a little, that should give you some idea of its longevity.

      Otherwise, pretty good resource for those new to the craft! HAGD!

      Gr8 listing - like it lots, many many I have never heard off - and some I will definitely use.

      Cunning - you put Afk in the header but didn't define it?

      One you missed - similar to PEBKAC - PICNIC - Problem In Chair Not In Computer

      and confusingly LOL is also used for Lots of Love - can be dangerous if user and or reader don't know the other meaning.
