Chat Lingo

Friday, March 17th, 2006 by | Filed Under: Using The Internet

Chat Lingo

Do you chat? You know, do you sit and talk to your friends and family over the computer through instant messengers such as Yahoo! or AOL? If you do, you may be familiar with the chat lingo that has become so popular these days. If you don’t chat very often, you may still use the chat lingo in your e-mails or just hear about them from day to day.

Well, in case you were wondering about some of the slang terms used, here’s a small list of some of the more common ones.

LOL = Laugh Out Loud
BRB = Be Right Back
TTYL = Talk To You Later
GTG = Got To Go
AFK = Away From Keyboard
JK = Just Kidding
THX = Thanks
TH = Thank You
YW = You’re Welcome
ROFL = Rolling on the Floor Laughing

L8R = Later

So, the next time you’re chatting away, use some of these terms and impress all of your chat buddies! :)
