Do you ever get that sinking feeling in your gut when you see terms, hashtags, or acronyms on social media and you have no clue what they could possibly mean? I’m talking, like, couldn’t even venture a guess?

Do you find yourself shouting, “kids these days! with their hashtags and their ‘cool-kid’ lingo...” and as you trail off you end up just feeling exceptionally old?

Don’t worry. It happens to the best of us. LoginRadius is here for you, and we can help.

We cover 12 social media slang words that you should probably know by now, but if for whatever reason (zero judgement here), you don’t, we break them down for you. We cover some basic ones to warm you up, like btw, b4, and b/c, and then dive right into deconstructing FOMO, WCW, MCM, and more.

And besides being full of useful hashtag and facebook phrase translations, it’s also a super quick (and clicky) read.
