LOL Icons and Smileys
LOL is said to be the third most popular Internet acronym, so it's popularity as an emoticon comes as no surprise. Almost everyone needs LOL Emoticons, that's why we've got this huge collection!
Thanks to the custom emoticon and animation abilities of MSN and Live Messenger, plenty of LOL Emoticons and icons have been created (we've even got a few LOL smileys). Many of these emoticons are very innovative and creative, and they come in many different colors and styles, so we're sure that you'll find a LOL emoticon that you like. If you don't find the emoticon you need, you can request one by contacting us!
We've also got other ROFL, ROTFL, LMAO and even some LOL variants like lawl, lolz and even lolol. Don't miss out on brightening up your conversations with these great LOL emoticons and icons, because if you do, you certainly won't be LOL! You can add as many of these icons as you like to your Messenger (MSN or Live, etc), and use a different icon each time you laugh.
LOL Usage Controversy
There has been some controversy over the widespread use of LOL, are users really laughing aloud when they use LOL? This issue has been attracting some serious criticism towards the beloved acronym, but nevertheless, the popularity of LOL continues to grow among Internet users (particularly teens).
These days, its become widely accepted among chatters that use of LOL does not necessarily mean they are really laughing out loud, but rather that they appreciate and understand the humor that you're trying to convey. This is probably due to the fact that LOL has lost it's impact because of its rampant (over)use. There really should be a keyboard with a special LOL-key (now there's a great idea!).
It's also well-known that LOL is used as a sentence-filler (or silence breaker) in situations where you have nothing to contribute to a conversation (or are too lazy) but would still like to let the other person know that you're paying attention. You might even use LOL to pretend you're amused about something that you don't really find funny, so that you avoid offending the other person. These are most likely the reasons why the "LOL - I'm not really laughing" emoticon was created!
More about LOL
Although spreading in face-to-face communication, unlike the equally (if not more) popular word Emoticon, "LOL" has yet to be officially recognized by a dictionary.
