“Most Popular Text Terms” Used in Internet Business and Online World!

Let’s Start:

Now let’s learn more of the“Funny Terms and Phrases” used in Internet Business and Online World! ( . . just a bit longer and more serious than the previous ones . .). They may not be as popular as the short ones but it is good and interesting to know their meanings.

Let’s start with the basics: An acronym is derived from the first letters of a phrase and is pronounced as a new word, for example POTATO stands for a hilarious acronym “People Over Thirty Acting Twenty One” and is pronounced "potato." It should also be noted that acronyms are generally typed IN ALL CAPS (not to be confused with SHOUTING, lol!) whereas shorthand is often typed in all lowercase.


I. TEST #1:

Just want to start it right to end up right! (This is very popular and went viral in various Social Media in the past. Just to refresh your memory . . . {(;-) )

Yup Damien . . .
Same ruling as Test #1 - as how the brain operates. . . .
