10 New Internet Abbreviations You Need to Know

FOMO no more!

(SPOT.ph) Gone are the days when GTG, BRB, DND, TTYL were the only abbreviations people used online. Internet slang has evolved, and the young ones have found a way to make them work even outside the cyber world. Now you can just say ILY to tell someone you love or say HBD when it's someone's birthday but of course you'd be JK because that's just...lazy. You might receive a WTF in return. Or if he DGAF, you'd get a simple TY in which case, you can respond with NP. Isn't it GR8 when phrases can be reduced to two to four letters? 

 

If you're the person who still thinks LOL means Lots of Love, you probably didn't understand anything from the last paragraph, but don't worry. We're here to guide you through the mind-boggling language of this generation so you can say goodbye to your FOMO (that’s Fear Of Missing Out, folks).
