OIC – oh, I see
There are still a lot of acronyms that are not listed here as in fact, the in world of stranger chat, this page will not be enough to accommodate all of them. You might think that you don’t need to know them as you will just use you’re the normal language but that will not do.

In virtual chat rooms, you can’t really expect them to be the same in the offline version. First of all, you will only see the other person via the cam. Second, everything will be abbreviated here as typing long words is a lot of hassles. Thus you really need to go with the trend.
