The abbreviation is older than that episode, which aired in March 2005, 
though:
Cyber bullies stalking online playground.

"Conflict escalates quickly online, where facial expression and voice
intonation are replaced by "jk," for just kidding, or "lol," for laughing
out loud. Matters are complicated when two "bff's," or best friends forever
in cyber-slang, share one another's passwords, as girls often do. When the
falling-out comes, they can wreak havoc by sending damaging messages
everywhere - with their new enemy's name attached. "

I have no idea how much older it might be than that.
