KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

If you haven’t checked your teens social media messages recently, you might be surprised to see what might as well be messages in a foreign language.

The shorthand codes used for texts, Snapchat and other social media platforms might be fooling parents.

Those letters and numbers are an ever-evolving code that kids pick up from their friends. Some acronyms really are harmless, like the now-common LOL, but there are plenty that aren't.

There are several companies who now help parents monitor their teen's social media accounts including Bark and netlingo.
