Term "Jejemon" explained

Jejemon is a pop-culture phenomenon in the Philippines characterized by a new style of writing — usually in text messages and on online social media platform such as Facebook.
“Jejemons," or those who embraced the jejemon fad, write "jeje" instead of hehe to indicate laughter. Using J instead of H might have been derived from Spanish, whose speakers denote the interjection as laughter, or because the letters "h" and "j" are beside each other on the computer keyboard, and that it is appended by "-mon" that came from the Japanese anime Pok√©mon, with "-mon" meant as "monster," hence "jeje monsters."
