WTF? Common Social Network Abbreviations

Last year I started writing an book on Social Media. Granted, it was going to be a self-published type thing, but I thought I could do it. Once I investigated how many Social Media/Facebook/Twitter "For Dummies" type books there were out there, I realized it would probably be a waste of time. But, with 10 chapters already written, I may not give up yet.

Anyway...one of the chapters was on common social media abbreviations, my own version of the urban dictionary type. I'd been to those site many times and got tired of cutting through the bullshit definitions, I just wanted an answer. So, I made my own list and am adding it here in case you stumble upon it and maybe just want a straight answer yourself. If there is one you are looking for that is not on this list, drop me a comment and I'll add it for you.
