I always use formal and I do not even use "XXX" that is how I managed to make a book in English.

Skool - school, m8 - mate, imho - in my humble opinion, hru - how are you, omg - oh my god, any1 - anyone, y - why, pls - please, be4 - before, w8 - wait, 2u - to you, lu - love you. Usually I use a full form of word, but when I haven’t free time I use a short form.

I don't know more style words. I learned about text message style today, it's pretty funny to me. And, I prefer writing in full.

I learned about text message style today, it's pretty interesting to me and funny. :)
I don't have more text message style except for today's styles. (sad)
I prefered writing in full than in text message style so far.
hmm.. i think using text message style with strangers can cause misunderstanding.

I also think the sameee, I think that write with abbrevations is easlier and for example if u r @ an important event you can't write a big text. Sooo I prefer 2 write with abbrevations.
byeee,
XOXO

Hi Nicolas
I am agree whith your opinion on the use of abbreviations in chats,I think that is more useful for certaìn things,for example when you are in class and the teacher explains so fast that you do not have time to copy, and more examples.
Cu later.

I think the same as u. When U uses that style it takes less time 2 write messages and young people can communicate more easily. Many people look 4 ways 2 write in a shot way and thx to this, they already have it.

There isn´t a difficult 2 comunicate in this way, because if u write in this way u r going to b faster when you write: Instead of write ``I love you´´ you put this:<3 or ``thanks´´ you can put thx and is shorter than write the complete word

I agree with you, I think this is more quickly to write all the words and I suppose that is easier for young people than old people.
