What does GOL stand for?

Giggling out loud

GOL is a fun acronym that stands for “giggling out loud”. It’s similar to the more widely used LOL, or “laughing out loud,” but suggests a softer, quieter kind of laughter.

You’ll often see GOL being used in text messages or online chats. It’s a quick and easy way for people to share that they found something amusing. It’s like a virtual chuckle!

When someone responds to your clever comment or joke with a GOL, it’s a good sign. It means your humor hit the mark, but maybe not quite enough to warrant a full-on LOL. Perhaps the joke was mildly funny, or the recipient may be in a situation where they need to keep their laughter under control.

For instance, let’s say you text a funny meme to a friend who’s in a quiet office meeting. They might respond with a GOL to let you know they appreciated the laugh, but couldn’t risk causing a disruption with a loud laugh.
