"YOLO", "SMH", "FML" and more added to the online edition of the Oxford Dictionary.

Drake first brought the term "YOLO" to the masses with his 2011 single "The Motto." While it's a fairly obvious statement-- You Only Live Once-- we'd never before seen it shortened to an acronym which we could hashtag all the time and use on a daily basis. At this point, everyone and their mother knows what the term YOLO means, even the Oxford Dictionary.

Reports are circulating today that the acronym has been added to the online version of the Oxford Dictionary (we're sure it'll make it in to the print edition eventually). Other words updated in their online dictionary include: "amazeballs", "SMH", "FML", "douchebaggery", "binge-watch" and "hate-watch." Yup. This is the age of the internet.
