What seems like a cryptic code to many is generally a well-thought-out acronym that helps save time for sender and receiver alike, and makes everyday routine processes easier and less energy-depleting.

eReflect welcomes initiatives that seek to document the ever-expanding database of Internet slang and acronyms. Erin Jansen, founder of NetLingo.com, recently published her book of chat and text abbreviations and other "internet-isms" to help people communicate more effectively and accurately through social media, mobile texting apps, and the Internet in general.
Online jargon can be cryptic and incomprehensible to the uninitiated. Even people who feel they’ve got a good grasp of Internet lingo will find that online vocabulary is ever-evolving, making it something which can be overwhelming to keep up with.
Erin Jansen’s book "NetLingo: The List – The largest list of text and chat acronyms" has recently been published, and eReflect finds that it’s a handy guide for anyone who wants to get a head start on using the fast and interactive tech-based reality of app texting and online chatting.
From acronyms to SMS talk and everything else in between, "NetLingo: The List" is the perfect illustration of how technology drives both language and creativity forward. If it weren’t for smartphones, online chatting, and other technologies, none of those words, or the devices and apps they inspired, would have been created. eReflect knows that language continually evolves, and Erin Jansen’s book is ironclad proof of how language is enriched, revised, and often turned on its head by the evolution of society.
Acronyms and abbreviations are often the hardest to understand for internet "noobs." Most people are familiar with LOL and BRB, but get lost with more obscure ones like CLM (career limiting move) and WOMBAT (waste of money, brains and time). This book is nothing short of a go-to source for parents, teens, teachers, and everyone else trying to understand and keep up with this compact and succinct new way of online communication. What seems like a cryptic code to many is generally a well-thought-out acronym that helps save time for sender and receiver alike, and makes everyday routine processes easier and less energy-depleting.
The book by Erin Jansen offers spelling help on how to write out and use various acronyms. For instance, is FAQ also correctly written as Fak or FAK? As many acronyms share letters, it’s important to know how to spell it to avoid misunderstandings. Internet lingo and abbreviations will only become more widespread eReflect concludes, and many have already ended up in print dictionaries and daily conversations, so the more knowledge people have of these new vocabulary trends, the better.
