Does texting code like LOL, ROFL, etc. have a place in article writing?
I mean if you write something funny it is funny. Writing LOL following the statement does not make it funny. What do you think about bringing texting lingo into long hand writing?
In my opinion no. A writer has many other ways to express that something is funny without resorting to such abbreviations. I also think that this lingo doesn't work equally well with all age groups.
No, is the short answer. Article writing is about quality content. Article directories will reject articles with spelling errors, poor grammar and senseless synonyms as well as for many more reasons; this is a good thing. Save LOL, LMAO and other "self-descriptive" phrases for Facebook and Twitter and bring your best when you write articles.
No, texting is short messages, abbreviations are fine there, smiley faces, etc, help to show meaning. Writers who need them to show meaning in the more precise language of an article, are in the wrong game.
Since I am not into texting yet, I have no idea of the meaning of many of these abbreviations. Texting codes, a possible shortcut to real meanings, do not belong in articles.
The question in my mind is why not? If I'm writing for a corporation and in AP style, probably not. If I am writing for an audience of people like me, why not?
No. The texting code has its place, not in article writing.
Depends on the target audience I suppose. If your writing primarily for teenagers then it should be acceptable and maybe even necessary to keep their attention.
