In August The New Yorker distributed an article about laughter phrases used online; last Thursday Facebook conveyed its enormous volume of information to the table, and confirmed that nobody says “Lol” in public any longer – at least not on social media.
“Why depend on stories when you have information?” Facebook said in the blog entry. “We dissected de-recognized posts and comments posted on Facebook in the most recent week of May with no less than one series of characters coordinating laughter.”
Notice the accentuation on “posts and comments” with no reference to messaging, which is private. What the social media found is that, in pubic in any event, individuals don’t use “Lol” any longer, leaning toward rather to use “Haha” or an emoji.
Truth be told, “Lol” made up just 1.9 percent of the laughing terms amid the week that Facebook examined, with “Haha” coming in at 51.4 percent and emoji coming in at 33.7 percent, “Hehe” came in third at 13.1 percent.

Note that this information demonstrates how individuals laugh in public, privately the messages could be overflowing with “Lols.”
