yeah, laugh out loud. i first encountered it over a decade ago in the IRC channels, and as far as i know it's only recently taken the twist "lots of love" from the Asian people.

I've always known it as Laugh Out Loud. I like the thought of Lots of Love but that would be silly when sending instant messages. I usually put it after something I have typed and want it to sound good humoured, hence Laugh Out Loud.

Hi Aissha, I was also very confusion when I was new here at mylot about the meaning of LOL. I asked my friend regarding this through private message. So, I got to know what it means. Some say it means 'Laugh Out Loud', 'Lots Of Love' etc. I think it depends upon when and where you are using it. If your posting some humor then it would mean 'Laugh Out Loud'.

There are lots of meaning for this acronym "LOL", it depends on what term you'd use it. At work, we use to say LoL, meaning Labour of Love!;) When online, LoL means Laughing out Loud or even Lots of Laughs. I love playing words, as everyone can provide their own interpertation of this very word (LoL)..

what i understand is that lol stands for "laugh on laugh", that means the person is trying to say that he or she is laughing very very much at that point of time.

I think it means "lot of laughs" or as you say "laugh out loud" It is always used after someone says something that is either funny or a little bit of a disagreement sentence...I do not think it means anything to do with love,even though it could,but it is used by total strangers to each other,where love does not even come into the picture.Its really something someone adds at the end of a sentence that lightens the mood so to speak....Thats just my opinion Aissha,it may or may not be the case.
