Cyber Speak Improves Brevity and Message ToneDue to the rise in digital gadgetry, writing is starting to overtake talking as a way of communicating with our family and friends. As a result, thousands of new terms (including abbreviations, icons, and specialist cyber terms) have been added to our language, and the number is growing rapidly.
Cyber Speak has come about to improve brevity and message tone. It is also great fun. Here are some common examples:
Specialist Cyber Terms
- 143 (I love you - number of letters in each word)
- 153 (I adore you - number of letters in each word)
- <4 (I really love you - more than <3)
- <2 (It's not love yet - less than <3)
- Meet Me At McDonald's Hairstyle
