It’s Tuesday, which means it’s time for Salty Social Media Vocabulary! Today’s list runs a broad gamut, so let’s dive right in.
Doxing: the act of researching and publicizing someone’s personal information via the internet. A fairly popular activity of both activists and trolls.
IDTIMWYTIM: “I Don’t Think it Means What You Think it Means.” Presumably influenced by Inigo Montoya’s popular line from The Princess Bride, this acronym is a common retort to someone who misuses words in a way that indicates they might not know the actual meaning of said word.
“It was so funny I literally died.”
“You said ‘literally,’ but I don’t think it means what you think it means otherwise you’d be dead right now.”
FOMO: “Fear of missing out.”
Example: I wanted to leave the party sooner, but because of my FOMO I didn’t leave until late.
IMO or IMHO: “In My Opinion” or “In My Humble Opinion.”
Example: “IMHO, Disney is overrated.”
AAMOF: “As a Matter of Fact.”
Example: “As a matter of fact, Disney makes lots of money.”
Have you used any of these? Think any of them are ridiculous? Share you thoughts and SMHs in the comments. See you next week.
