Meaning and use

AFK is AOLspeak for "Away From Keyboard". It is typically used to inform one's online friends that one is, well, away from the keyboard, and therefore unable to tank Illidan. AFK is different from BRB because it is typically applied to one's profile or avatar after a server has detected a lack of input over a set amount of time. BRB, on the other hand, is used to inform one's online friends that one plans to leave the keyboard, or divert their attention to another task. Therefore, one says BRB when one wishes to go AFK.

Examples

BRB, FBI (meaning "Be right back, the FBI is here"). Most often used by people who touch themselves to pix of naked children. Used commonly on 4chan... oddly enough.
