 The New In-Thing Among Gen-Y Is 'Talking Like a Boss'

It has been revealed that if "LOL" (laugh out loud) is still your favourite three letter word in this super fast world of Internet, then the present generation will find that old.

The lingo among youths has evolved from the "LOL" and "ROFL" (rolling on the floor laughing) of the previous generation, to acronyms and phrases such as "like a boss", "troll" or "facepalm".

This whole new set of phrases and abbreviations is called "memes".

Defined as "the act of doing something as a boss would do" by the Urban Dictionary, the latest generation of Internet users say "Like A Boss" to describe people who do things with an air of superiority and do not care about how others perceive them.

"Trolls" are those who target others with online jeers, while a "facepalm" moment is when you are left speechless by a foolish statement or act by another person.

Those who state the obvious, and post comments or status updates about things which everyone already knows, are now referred to as "Captain Obvious".

Vijay Ganesan, 28, said he had learnt these Internet memes mostly from a website called 9gag, which features pictures and videos uploaded by users, largely based on memes.

"The posts are very creative and have even influenced the way I speak with friends," the Star Online quoted him as saying.
