How are sociolinguistic acronyms used by human civilizations representative of processing efficiency?

Popular acronyms abound. One such is JFK, which is the sociolinguistic abbreviation of the name, John Fitzgerald Kennedy, the widely appealing 35th U.S. President John F. Kennedy. Another is WHO, the abbreviation of the World Health Organization. Another is LOL, the World Wide Web chat room abbreviation symbol for the verbal words, "laugh out loud," which imply that one is conveing the statement, "I am laughing out loud."

Sociolinguists know that acronyms are anthropological processing inventions of communications efficiencies that illuminate humanity's interest in making perceptual logic easier and faster.

Does this explain the cultural appeal of the Hollywood (USA) movie "Johnny Mnemonic" (1995)?

Are they printing movie posters on hemp/recycled paper yet?

God bless!
