History of Instant Messaging

Remember your first instant message?

I don’t.  But this article brought back some memories.

  • BRB: Be Right Back
  • LOL: Laugh(ing) Out Loud
  • OMG: Oh My God/Gosh
  • ROFL: Rolling On Floor Laughing
  • TTYL: Talk To You Later
  • TY: Thank You
  • NP: No Problem
  • OTP: On The Phone

Actually I don’t see too many of these phrases today except LOL and OMG.  A whole new phrase book has been written.
