Txt Messaging


Trying to keep up with new technology and what our kids know is tough. Have you ever watched a thirteen-year-old do her/his homework? Multi-tasking is an ability built in to every teenager. They can listen to music, maybe download it, watch television, Email, and text message while doing their homework. I thought you might like to know some of the most common abbreviations used in text messaging.

  • 404 – I don’t know
  • A3 – Anytime, anywhere, anyplace
  • ADD – address
  • AFK – away from keyboard
  • BRB – Be right back
  • DIR – Dad in room
  • FYEO – For your eyes only
  • LOL – Laughing out loud
  • MoS – Mother over shoulder
  • nOOb – Newbie
  • PM – Private message
  • SLAP – Sounds like a plan
  • LTNT – Long time no type
