Social media is such a big part of our lives nowadays
We go online to get our daily dose
of entertainment and information
However, sometimes we might see
a lot of words on the Internet
that we’re not so familiar with
among them are the acronyms
You know it’s not real English vocabulary
they’re just letters put together
to form somewhat of a word
But what do they mean?!
What do YOU (acronyms) mean?!
What do you mean~~~
So today I’ll be introducing
some really common and popular acronyms
that people normally use
For Your Information 供你參考
This is pretty straight-forward
I’m giving you some information
that you might wanna know
or might be interested in
Before Anyone Else 北鼻寶貝
So the person you’re calling BAE
is your first priority
and you put them before anyone else in the world
Laugh Out Loud 大笑
LOL basically means laugh out loud
other times it might mean
the popular online game, League of Legends
and sometimes people might misuse it
like this funny text message here
You Only Live Once 人生只有一次
This acronym is used
to encourage people to do
what they normally won’t do
and just give it a go
Cuz you only live once, so no regrets
By The Way 喔對了
By the way is something you’d say
when you wanna add additional info
If you want to annoy someone
just type “btw”
followed by…nothing
As Soon As Possible 越快越好
You’d often see this in e-mails or text messages
when you are required to reply
or answer at your soonest convenience
To Be Honest 說實話
This acronym is used
before you say something completely truthful
Pro tip!
When you see this
be prepared to get insulted
Throwback Thursday 舊照重PO
At first this was a commonly used
# hashtag on Instagram and Twitter
now you can see it almost anywhere
You use this when you share a picture

and is usually posted on Thursdays
Pretty cute, right?

RSVP (Répondez S'il Vous Plaît) 希望你能回覆
(I don't think that's English~)

and is normally seen on invitation cards
It just means, “respond if you please”
so you’d take it as an invitation
to respond to whatever was asked of you

Also a very common term on the Internet
normally used at the end of a chat
