Sometimes it's hard to keep up with technology. It seems like lately I've had to find a teenager to help me with even the most basic stuff.Yes, even with a college degree I have trouble navigating my way through new phones, software updates, and ever changing apps.

Huffington Post is bringing us up to date on some of the newer abbreviations on social media, and you might be puzzled at some of them, even with an explanation. That's because some of the abbreviations have now become stand ins for the actual phrases they were supposed to shorten.

So if you have a teen in the house, scroll down and pay attention!
