Btw Did You Get My Text

There was an article posted recently on Huffington Post about how English is completely different from whatever language we text in, ranging all the way from “lol” to “heyyy.” (We won’t get into the idea that the number of y’s means something)

It’s funny how our generation has come up with basically a whole other language or form of English that is specifically for social media and texting. Whether this is a good thing or a bad thing won’t be known until later. But even now, you can see how this is changing communication between younger and older generations.

Has growing up in a technology driven world and living on social media killed younger generations ability to communicate? Specifically when going out to get jobs or network. Professionalism is a world that doesn’t involve lol, btw, and wya. Then again, we could be at a point where our culture and language is shifting as it has done in the past. Without a doubt we don’t talk like English settlers did back in the 1600s.

Text talk is the language of the future. That includes emoji talk. (Or is that a whole language in it’s own for iPhone users?) Either way, it’s a little alarming that most kids don’t know that the “hashtag symbol” (#) is really a pound/number sign (or maybe I’m just getting old).
