Ever wonder what those abbreviations you read in blogs mean? Well if you didn’t grow up with text messaging, you probably do.

I kept reading things like LOL, OTB, and n00b wondering whether the writer was an illiterate. Then I realized I was caught in a paradigm shift without even knowing it. So fret no more here’s a text abbreviation dictionary for old farts like me.
