Internet slang - 1

.

Internet users coin “internet slang” to save time on keystrokes. It saves the writer’s time, but most writers do not realize that the reader of their slang spends more than twice the time to understand what the writer is trying to say. That is why I strive not to use internet slang in my communications.

While surfing, and by searching the internet, I deduced the meaning of a few internet slang plus a few others which I would like to share here with you.

  1. SOS means “Same Old Sh!t” these days? It used to mean that someone was in urgent need of help. I can see it now, someone sending out an emegency SOS and someone picking up on it and thinking “oh, not this same old sh!t again!”.
