THE WORLD IS READY FOR NEW PUNCTUATION MARKS

THE WORLD IS READY FOR NEW PUNCTUATION MARKS


Facebook, Twitter and texting have created new ways of communicating.  It is about time we officially made certain abbreviations and emoticons recognizable punctuation marks.

Lol is used to say “I was just kidding on that last comment.”  There is no need for a period when it is used.

I.E.

“You sure have big feet. Lol.” This is redundant.  We need a new key, the lol key to save valuable typing time.

“You sure have big feet lol”

If a sentence makes you happy, :) should suffice in lieu of a period.

If a statement makes you sad… :( should mark the end of the thought.

If a statement makes you cry… :’(

I love you <3

If you want a remark to be read as LOUD use :0

Can we please put these and other common symbols on their own keys and turn them right-side up?

I’m tired of twisting my head.

  1. It would be so easy on a smart phone with the keyboard on the screen. Sadly, don't have one of those.

  2. I'm all for rotating those things upright.

  3. People often send me comments with a variety of symbols I don't understand. I often need to Google them just to uncode what's being said.

  4. I think your plan is a good one and you taught me a couple of new ones. I read about a mom who texted her daughter that a relative had died and ended it with Lol....she thought it meant "lots of love."

  5. I still don't get the "J" thing after a sentence. That one is new to me. Is it a smile or something?
