With the rise of smartphones, there are so many new things that have become a part of our regular everyday communication. It has not only made communicating with our loved ones easy but also fast. One such aspect of our communications through smart phones is the use of abbreviations.
The use of abbreviations may be very useful to some and may prove to be a challenge to many. The main aim is to shorten the time taken up by typing during conversations by text messages. Using multiple numbers of acronyms helps us to communicate the same thing in a very less amount of time, in comparison to what it may have taken if we took to communicating through long sentences. Irrespective of the above benefits, using abbreviations on a regular basis and doing so effectively requires us to have a certain amount of knowledge of the correct meanings of these acronyms. This is exactly where it gets challenging, and becomes a problem for many. Are you facing the same kind of problem? Do you often find it difficult to comprehend what a lot of your friend's messages mean?
