If you still LOL at jokes online, you're behind the times. A study released by Facebook says users are ditching "laugh out loud" in favor of "haha," "hehe" and emojis.
Spurred by a New Yorker article about "e-laughter", researchers at the social media giant conducted the "The Not-So-Universal Language of Laughter" study by analyzing posts and comments on Facebook during the last week in May. The researchers did not have access to the names of the posters.
The researchers analyzed global shares, but restricted the study to predominantly English expressions of laughter and 13 "laughter" emojis.
