The meanings of some contractions and interjections that are commonly used on social media

Most times, when we chat with our friends on Facebook, Whatsapp, Twitter etc., they make use of contractions and interjections whose meanings we don't really know and won't bother to ask maybe because we don't want them to see us as people who are lagging behind. So, we play along and end the chat without knowing or learning the meanings of these contractions and interjections. Please, never you end a moment with your friends without learning a few things from them. If they refuse to teach you, devise means to make them do. What are friends for if not for inconveniences? Lol!
