LOL has become my go-to word to cover all expressions of joy, laughter and smile on facebook and other social network sites I use.
Recently however, it occurred to me that I’ve been abusing it. I will be going back to using ‘hehehe’, ‘hahaha’ and occasionally and appropriately use you-know-what.
I bet I’m not the only one who is killing the LOL.
ACID TEST / APPROPRIATE USE OF LOL
Someone posted something funny? Yes. Did you actually Laugh out Loud? No! Please don’t comment LOL.
If someone said something thought-provoking/ pithy and you commented with an LOL…you just abused LOL, just use SMH or ‘hehehe’.
If your friend post a picture of you sleeping in a trotro….by all means Laugh Out Loud!!
I try to remind myself every time I’m tempted to use LOL that it actually means Laughing Out Loud.
