Dad uses FacebookDad called me up for the Napoleon’s Idiot Series and asked me what ROFL (he pronounced it as roofel) meant? I couldn’t help but to LOL (Laugh Out Loud) because of how he said it. After talking to him I realized there are a lot of you out there that probably see these sorts of texting acronyms on Facebook all the time but never knew what they mean and probably never asked.

So…out of hundreds of acronyms, I put together a list of the most used texting and chat acronyms that you’re sure to see on Facebook and other Social Media sites.

I’ve also included a list I found online for Seniors chat acronyms that are hilarious! Be sure to check them out down below.
