I didn't know the ROFLMAO. Thanks for the info! It took me I think a week before I discovered the meaning of LMAO. I think if you had not told us the ROFLMAO, I would not know it forever. Have a nice day!

It means "Laugh Out Loud". If something is really funny, people will type that in letting other know they found it funny or entertaining. It comes from txting on cell phones.

Hi vinay! It has a very simple meaning. It is cyber speak. There is alot of words that people use to instant message or text. They use these letters to shorten words to make it easier and faster to get their point across. There are so many of them out there now. LOL simply means "laughing out loud". That is one of the most common of the ones that are used. But, there are so many more. Most of which can't me listed here at mylot!

first time me also got confused when saw this word, and finally my friend told me that it is actually of acronym of 'Lots of laugh' and after that I got other description for similar word like 'Laugh out loud ' , but I find one thing that all these word describing the same meaning . Actually these words are generated for chatting and mesurely used at that time to express the expression, we also use emoticons for express the emotions , I hope you know well what is emoticons its also know as SMILY... so take care for Rest

It means "laugh out loud". I didn't know at first like you but after I asked around I got to know its meaning. Now I am using the short form quite often because I like the expression I make to people receiving my message. There are also other short forms such as "btw" - it means "by the way" and "w/o" means "without". But I am sure you know many of them. Yes the term "lol" is confusing to me too from the start because it sounds funny. Take care.
