    Lol is something you think to get your message across as sometimes it is hard to differentiate as to what is funny it's so sad.

    No. That is used for something mildly funny that gets a smile or maybe a bit of a chuckle. If I am actually laughing out loud, it's LMAO. Or if I am busting a gut and find something hilarious, it's ROFLMFAO. 

    I spent a lot of time on IRC chat in the late 90's and early 2000's.

    When I say "LOL" I'm laughing out loud on social media. 

    Which, is not the same as in person. 

    So, it still applies.
