Well i would argue that "for the lulz" have a bit more self aware irony to it than YOLO.

And no one goes out and does stupid **** "for the lulz". They stay indoors and do stupid **** on the internet.

^ Agreed

From what I have seen/read (We are kidding ourselves if we say we go outside really), YOLO seems to be the chant of what experts call 'valley girls' or whatever Jersey Shore/Reality Shows are about, before doing something stupid, dangerous, etc. to assure themselves doing something regrettable is sound decent due to them wanting to live life to the fullest or what not

'For the Lulz' (a phrase I myself have used on occasion, truth be told), is a statement that someone who spends more time they have any right to online says before doing something stupid, but is intended to at least amuse themselves or others

Similar, but definitely not the same
