Text in Translation

fen_network_logo.gifThe evolution of the digital world has lead to the use of acronyms such as LOL, K, and even BFF, but when your kid starts typing A/S/L, PRW, or MorF, you need to refer to a glossary for translation. FamilyEducation.com has provided A Parent’s Guide to Understanding Online Acronyms with just such a glossary. It applies to IM and sites like FaceBook as well as text messages sent and received on your kids phones. Even if you’re not the parent of a texting teen, you might find the glossary helpful for shortening your messages to fit the 160 character limits, or translating communications sent from a friend.
