Posted Leave a commentPosted in Articles

IDK if you’ve ever experienced this BTW. FYI I was ROFL at cat videos PPL post on FB LOL! TTYL I have noticed something in my personal communication and I am wondering if you are struggling with it as well. At my desk, typing away on my keyboard I have no problem using professional writing in email and communication. Get me on my phone answering an email in line at Starbuck’s and inevitably I will have to backspace out an FYI or BTW or some other texting lingo that my recalcitrant thumb finds appropriate. Is the business environment changing? Is it okay (or going to be) to use texting lingo in business communication?
