We’re always finding new and exciting ways to innovate and change the way that we live. Somewhere along the way, we stumbled across a comfortable sub-section of the English language that was popularised through messaging services such as AOL and MSN Messenger among others in the late 90’s/2000’s.
With Facebook Messenger becoming the new norm, we thought it would be worthwhile taking a look back at some of those beloved internet terms, as you may well see these popping up in your online conversations today.
Naturally, these are only a few of the short-handed iterations that found their way into popular messaging culture. The list is growing daily, and shows no signs of slowing down.
What’s your favourite initialism or acronym? Are you still using any of the ones we’ve mentioned?
