1. What does ALOL mean in messages and online?

Actually laughing out loud

ALOL is a variation of LOL, which means a person actually laughs out loud rather than just using the expression. It is one of the highest compliments a person can share about something humorous since it means that the funny thing elicited an audible laugh, which is rare.

For example, if you tweet a hilarious meme, one of your followers may reply with, "OMG, ALOL!!" Or, you might message "ALOL. I just made a large noise in the library" after your friend sends you a funny fail video.


I was ALOL when I read your message, it was so funny!
And it's all true. I swear!
