Internet slang is coined and popularized to save time on keystrokes.

Coined and Popularized By Internet Users

I learned that these slang terms were coined and popularized by those on the Internet to save time on keystrokes. The acronyms are also used in text messages, emails, blogs, forums, imageboards, instant messages, as well as on social networking sites such as Facebook.

Memes Evolving By Natural Selection

Some internet slang will also develop not just for the sake of saving time, but as identification by members of the same social internet grouping in which members feel loyal to. Members will repeatedly use an acronym (a common typing error that is eventually turned into slang, for example) and soon it catches on in the world wide web as slang. When slang develops that way, they are memes that are evolving by natural selection, much like in biological evolution.

Internet Slang is a New Language Developing

Today, young people are using Internet slang not only in written communication, but also in spoken communication. This truly is a sure sign of a language that is in the process of developing into a brand new language. Whilst the use of Internet slang saves time for the writer, the reader often may take more than twice the time to understand what the writer is trying to say this way.
