So when you are typing OOAK, you don’t need to be careful or particular about all upper case or all lower case. The basic purpose of an internet jargon is to save time and be a part of the social internet culture. And because it is understood by everyone using the internet, they will understand the meaning whether you type OOAK or ooak. You can always use the internet jargons in informal and casual settings the way you like. And never, ever, use these in professional settings where you have a very formal relationship with the people you are talking to.
