I'm usually not laughing every time I use "lol". Since it's so hard to determine tone from text, I often use "lol" to show that I'm not serious.
I only use lol when I am actually laughing out loud. For things I find mildly humerous I use "haha". I probably use it too often, but I am full of nervous laughter in real life haha.
I assume they're either light-hearted or sarcastic.
Quoting RedRozeMom:Well..LOL...I don't think anything...LOL
