You are engaged on your favorite social media site or just texting a friend when all of a sudden the conversation takes an awkward turn. You wonder what it is you've said or you have to double check what the other person has said. "No, this can't be right", you think as you contemplate how to respond. Autocorrect is a major contributor of some serious conversations turned hilarious or downright nasty. Are you a fan of autocorrect?

At one point, I turned off autocorrect on my iphone. I wrote some text messages and they turned out to have a lot of typos because the keyboard is very small and I end up hitting the wrong letters accidentally. Since then I turned it back on. I hate autocorrect but it seems better with it on when I write a text. Just have to proofread before I send anything.

My auto correct is turned off. However I recently stumbled across a website that had auto correct built in. It was actually much more annoying than the one on my phone. I tried to post a comment there and was never able to finish it.
