What Does :L Mean?

:L means "Laughing" or "Sad Face."

":L" (or ":l") is an emoticon that is used to mean "I am laughing" (similar to, but not as intensely as LOL) or to depict a sad face and express disappointment or frustration. Context is crucial to understanding the meaning of ":L". For example:
  • Dallas Cowboys fan: Dallas Cowboys is the most valuable sports team in the world.:L.
  • Philadelphia Eagles fan: Dallas Cowboys is the most valuable sports team in the world.:L.
The capital "L" in ":L" represents a more intense or exaggerated version of the expressed emotion than the lowercase "l" in ":l".
