Falling off chair laughing

When someone sends you FOCL, it means they're laughing so hard that they're falling out of their chair. You might receive this acronym in text or chat messages, when the sender is busting a gut (and possibly their hip).

Most commonly, people send FOCL in response to jokes and other humorous messages, to let you know that you've set them laughing. People may also use FOCL when telling you about something that (really) tickled their funny bone.
