Popular Slang: Top Slang Terms in Social Media – Facebook Slang, Instagram Hashtags, Text Acronyms, etc.

With the invention of the internet came a greatly increased use in slang – especially acronyms! Slang terms and acronyms make written and typed communication much faster and more efficient by letting a person type a message, email, or text in a shorter period of time. With the invention of Usenet (where LOL was first used) and IRC (Internet Relay Chat), a ton of acronyms and slang terms were invented and popularized. New slang terms and acronyms are still being invented with social networking websites like Facebook and Twitter, and with apps like Instagram.
