I have taken to saying "lol" as of late in texting and whatnot.
But I have a confession to make.
When I say "lol", ninety-nine percent of the time, I'm sitting there without so much as cracking a smile. And I can guarantee you that as much as people say it, probably the majority of the time, that's the situation with them too.
Then why do we say it if we don't mean it (ninety-nine percent of the time)?
I think there are two main reasons why people say lol when they don't mean it.

1. Because it makes almost anything sound less serious.
"Lol I hate you"
"Lol my cat died"
"Lol that was soo stupid"

2. Because it takes up space when you have nothing to say.
"Haha yeah, so I was like eating a sandwich the other day and it was good lol!"
"Oooh lol that's cool"

If we were all truly honest, almost all we'd ever say is lolwkasf.
Laughing out loud while keeping a straight face.
Say what you mean, mean what you say.
