Word Up Wednesday – What’s your favorite internet acronym?


Do you use acronym’s?

I’m not talking about the ones you use for work like TPS Reports or NAVCOMSUBRON19 (my husband is retired Navy and we live with acronyms, this is a real one, I didn’t make it up).

I’m talking about the little ones that float around in texting and on Facebook?

I still like to keep the line separate and not use acronyms in my professional correspondence, even if the person I might be emailing is a close acquaintance.  For me, acronyms cross the line into super casual and I like to stick to using them on Facebook, Twitter or texting….that is – if I remember to use them.

What are you favorite acronyms?

TTYL!  My Dad uses this one all the time (and hey, I remembered it!)

  1. I do have a new word – I was trying to say PPC & CPA, but I couldn’t get it out. I just kept saying CPP or PPA and then it was just letters coming out of my mouth in random order. I call that Acronymania!

  2. Funny Sonya! What is PPC? And is CPA what I think it is?

  3. For a long time I thought LOL was “Lots Of Luck.” And it took me quite awhile to discover that OBO (in relation to online sales) was not “Offered By Owner,” rather than its most likely meanining: “Or Best Offer.”
