feel free to use LOL and OMG in your school essay

Every year, Oxford English Dictionary releases new words which are worth to go in the dictionary. According to their blogpost, they are adding OMG and LOL. Believe it or not.

OMG: [OMG int. (and n.) and adj.]: ‘Oh my God’ (or sometimes ‘gosh’, ‘goodness’, etc.)
LOL: [LOL int. and n./2]: ‘laughing out loud’—are strongly associated with the language of electronic communications (email, texting, social networks, blogs, and so on)

Other words include other abbreviations such as IMHO (in my humble opinion), TMI (too much information), and BFF (best friends forever).

I don't even use those, and there's a bunch more on top of that?! What is going on in the dictionary world?
