24 Times Spelling Proved Too Hard For Facebook Users

spelling

English spelling is hard. Not nearly as complicated as French spelling, but still not at all simple. And it feels like people have stopped paying attention to it. They rely too much on autocorrect or spellcheckers and most of the time don’t even take the time to give what they’ve written a quick read-through. But programs like those aren’t infallible and just one tiny mistake can sometimes give your sentence a completely different meaning.

In this modern era, life seems to have sped up. The technological advances allowing for incredibly quick sending, receiving, and processing of information have made people extremely impatient. They don’t have the time to write out complete words, and, more often than not, resort to using abbreviations and acronyms. The resulting sentences are usually almost impossible to understand. This is a particularly common occurrence on social media.

Let’s take Facebook for example, and check out this list compiled by Providr of 25 people who were left a bit embarrassed by their spelling blunders.
