Or is it just a habit?

#2 Posted by applesxc47 (10761 posts) -

I never type 'lol'. I type 'hahaha' occasionally, but it's usually to convey that I'm joking, because otherwise it's hard to interpret.

#3 Posted by KiIIyou (27157 posts) -
Yeah yeah.

no
#5 Posted by shadowkiller11 (7956 posts) -
No I just go haha, 50% of the time when I go "haha" it's usually a result of a smirk/smile from something funny.

#8 Posted by Pirate700 (46465 posts) -

Not usually. I typically just use it to note that I found it funny.

I know people who have actually done that, same with 'rofl', 'ily' and 'omg'. The english language is slowly dying.

It depends the medium i'm typing on. Emails, notes, facebook statuses, gamespot, forums I usually never time lol unless it's something funny, things like facebook chat, texting, and videogames i almost always type lol. Dunno why.

I genuinely lol'd at this (because it's true for me as well).

Yes, I am also easily amused.

#42 Posted by meconate (10476 posts) -

Usually when I type;

:lol: Hahaha!

That usually means I've actually laughed.

Most of my 'lol's are used in sarcasm. I barely use it to mean I'm laughing in person.

#43 Posted by sune_Gem (12463 posts) -

I'm smiling usually.

#44 Posted by dercoo (12555 posts) -

It usually means it got a light chuckle or smirk out of me.

It's almost a SW trademark. Upset people on purpose, finish off post with multiple :lol:'s.
#46 Posted by PiscesChick93 (10714 posts) -

No. It's a habit, really.

If I type 'hahaha' or something like that, I usually have laughed.

#47 Posted by ShadowsDemon (9550 posts) -
Lol no, I don't lol.
#48 Posted by Laihendi (5834 posts) -
No, but generally when I say "lol" it's just to be ironic.
#49 Posted by tocool340 (20682 posts) -
I usually type lol at things that get me to chuckle a bit....
#50 Posted by Amster_G (4295 posts) -

90% of the time I don't show any expressions on my face when I type 'lol'. I'll only ever type 'haha' and actually smile, or chunkle.
