ORIGIN OF ASL
American Sign Language was created in the United States in the 19th century at the American School for the Deaf or ASD but this has already crept into social networks since Snapchat will soon have a new lens that will allow the surfer to learn sign language.
However, in social networks this acronym is one of many that helps a cybernaut to get more information about the other user with whom he is conversing and thus get to know each other better.
So the acronym ASL chat on the network known as Omegle is an abbreviation for “age, sex, location”.
That means that the person you are talking to wants to know a lot more about his or her interlocutor.
On various websites it is very common to give out age, sex and location in abbreviated forms, such as: “25/m/ca”, which means “25 years old, male, California” although because it is completely anonymous, you can even fake information to hide your identity for greater security.
CURIOSITIES OF ASL
When you chat on Omegle, you are talking to another stranger and you are completely incognito, so it’s up to you whether you share personal information or not, so you can make use of the app’s ASL abbreviation.
