Parents’ Guide to Text Messaging

Woman Text MessageEven people over 30 know what it means when we see RSVP, NA, ASAP or BYOB.  The language of text messaging is really not much different. 

Entire phrases are reduced to a few letters so people can type quickly with their thumbs on cell phones and other electronic devices, using minimal text to communicate. 

I highly recommend A Guide to Understanding Online Chat if you need help reading text messages or if you want to start sending them.  In fact, you may want to print out the entire guide for reference.

Text messages are a great way to keep in touch with your children (and won’t they be blown away that you know the lingo?).  I’m also finding more and more home buyers and sellers prefer texting as a way of communicating with me about Crofton real estate.  

Here are a few text message abbreviations to get you started:

Laugh out Loud

LOL

 

I miss you

IMU

I have a question

?

 

So Sorry!

SS

SUS

Parents over shoulder

POS

Some children and teens feel very confident communicating via text messages because they think of it as a secret language, not understood by adults.  I’m not too old to learn, are you? 

Besides, text messaging is one more tool that sets me apart from other real estate agents in Maryland.
