Social Media Jargon

social media jargon

Do you ever read a Facebook post or a tweet and wonder “What in the heck are they talking about?” or what someone means when they post “TRS but you are KIR”?  The conveniences offered by new methods of communication such as texting, instant messaging, and especially social media have increased the use of jargon to shorten words as a way to get messages across faster.  So instead of saying “That really sucks but you are keepin’ it real” you could just say “TRS but you are KIR”.  Jargon is also increasingly used as a way to shorten messages for easier reading or as required by the tool being used such as Twitter, which allows only up to 140 characters per tweet. 

So if you often feel lost in the jargon used when snooping around in your kids’ text messages or reading through Facebook posts then maybe this alphabetical list of what I call “social media jargon” will help you out.
