LOL is laughing out loud. LMAO is laughing my *** off and roflmao is rolling on the floor laughing my *** off... So basically you are either laughing while writining or at what you are reading,,

Laugh Out Loud LOL A lot of people use it because they don't know what else to say. There was nothing funny said but they don't know what else to say. There is also Rolling On The Floor Laughing My Butt Off I hope that helped.
