If you see someone posting a funny image of a cat lounging with sunglasses and something like “TFW you’re off of work for a long weekend,” know that it’s one of the funny text acronyms that people are using these days. It translates to “that feel/feeling when,” and it’s most commonly used in association with visual images that represent how someone is feeling. Try using it with a smiling selfie like “TFW dinner came out even better than I imagined.” These selfie captions will make your friends LOL (that’s “laugh out loud”).
You’ve definitely seen this one all over the Internet and via text, but what does it even mean? Quite literally, “no big deal.” It’s one of the most commonly used text abbreviations and fits just about everywhere. Next time someone says they can’t make it to your party, just text back “NBD”—even if you’re silently fuming.
FOMO is the granddaddy of text abbreviations because it’s been around for years and means “fear of missing out.” Other text acronyms like “BFFs” might be used on social media posts from parties or nights out, but “FOMO” is what you feel when you see them, and weren’t invited. Use it when your best friend uploads a picture of herself on the greatest beach vacation of all time by just commenting, “Gorgeous, #FOMO!”
