US has impish of Acronym for everything

Tech follows US standards and US has impish of acronym for everything. So much so that they can say FML to say F*** My Life. My point is how can you get emotions around saying FML. To my shock, this is one of the oldest acronyms and people use FML everywhere it makes sense.

I am not against acronyms, but this makes me learn these acronyms, as I don’t use them in my real life so much, so I need to make my memory remember by heart. There are tons and tons of acronym which are very specific to vertical of business, a place you work, social media platform you use, community what you belong to, a region where you come from. Acronyms are going to be there, and you need to have a learning curve whenever there is a challenge to understanding it.

As American as… abbreviation. Americans love to abbreviate things and create acronyms. This is not new, and it is since the world war or even before that.


Social media has given a boost to acronyms and the library of acronyms will grow and become very specific to:

  • Social media acronyms
  • Business-specific social media acronyms
  • Technical acronyms
  • Gen Z social media acronyms

There can be many other specific groups. I attempt to put them together for reference. You can prep before you have the next hangout or meeting or gathering so that you live in a time and level up your social vocabulary RN (right now).
