The Most Common Internet Slang Words and Acronyms Used Online

Internet Slang refers to a variety of slang languages used by different people on the Internet


Internet slang originated in the early days of the Internet with some terms predating the Internet. Internet slang is used in chat rooms, social networking services, online games, video games and in the online community.

An example of Internet slang is “LOL” meaning “laugh out loud”. It is difficult to provide a standardized definition of Internet slang due to the constant changes made to its nature.

Many people use the same abbreviations in texting and instant messaging, and social networking websites. Acronyms, keyboard symbols and abbreviations are common types of Internet slang.

These texting terms are only used in very informal situations online or in texts and are more often used by younger people.
