OMG LOL ROFL

Sunday, July 17, 2011   (2 Comments)

I wonder sometimes if, many many years from now, someone will unearth an old laptop or smartphone, or find some way to harvest internet correspondence and work on a way to archive it, or to study what people said way back in the 2000s.


And whether they’ll understand, "OMG ur pix R so awesome!!!!! Hugs!”

Social networking makes us talk funny. It just does. Whether it’s because it’s easier to thumb OMG on the micro-keys of a Blackberry, or we’ve just gotten lazy and decided spelling things correctly, writing in complete sentences and just using ONE exclamation point are for losers, this is the language of our time now.

Past generations had "Fourscore and seven years ago today …”, "The only thing we have to fear is fear itself …”, "Ask not what you can do for your country …”, "I have a dream …”

We have, "Dislike button!!!!!”

They had fourscore, we have Foursquare.

Oscar Wilde was famed for his one–liners, but imagine if he had tacked a common social networking device onto this one: "Be yourself; everyone else is already taken. LOL"

Imagine if Winston Churchill had done this: "Ummm, we shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender …”

It was probably unavoidable.

If past generations had social networking they might have talked funny,
too. Ben Franklin might have sent John Adams a re-tweet along the lines of RT@tjefferson: life, liberty & the pursuit of happiness. #screwyoukinggeorge <-----totally.

Shakespeare’s career might have risen or fallen on the number of "likes” on his Facebook page. Would we have even ever heard of "Titus Andronicus?” Imagine the reactions to it: "Um, cannibalism, William? Really? Really? Like, ew.”

But I think what’s puzzling about it is that I can’t imagine people talking in real life like they do online. I can’t imagine someone saying, upon seeing a friend’s new baby, "OMG so sweet! HUGS!”

Or when a friend gets a promotion or a new job, can you imagine someone saying, "Triple-like!”

And if they did, would you say "”?
