From Facebook to Twitter to instant messages, teenagers are finding quicker and easier ways to send messages to each other, but does this lead to poor grammar?
With shortcuts such as L-O-L, ALOTBSOL, O-M-G, some educators believe these phrases are poor grammatically and could be destroying the English language.
The phases are used on purpose not to offend, but it's just the way our society seem to work these day with the culture of social media.
Will shortcut contribute to children losing their smarts? Not necessarily so, some educators believe it actually makes them smarter.
Just remember, there are millions of eyes peering at Facebook and Twitter, so remember to proof before you hit send.
