Internet is an interesting place where strange things brew, like the internet slangs. The language that makes you sound all cool, smart and jazzy but at the same time it is confusing because there are new internet slangs added every second. There’s no way you can ignore these slangs because someone is always using it around you. Like it or not, in order to get by in real life, you ought to know what these slangs really mean. In fact, Oxford Dictionary Online has included couple of them, so that justified.
I remember having the toughest time interacting with my teenage cousin. She was using these ridiculous, weird filler (in my opinion) and I had no clue what they meant. I pretended to laugh, but I knew deep down I looked silly and outright stupid. Trust me, from my experience I can vouch that the embarrassment is real.
To save you from such embarrassing situations, I penned down couple of trendy internet slangs that might come handy.
