Editor’s Corner: Internet Abbreviations

The other day I was perusing the Nextdoor.com website and noticed that someone posted a message with a subject line that started with ISO. I didn’t know what ISO meant, so I looked it up. ISO is an abbreviation for “in search of.”

Here are some more internet abbreviations from Dictionary.com, some of which you may already be familiar with. Note: This is not a complete list of every existing internet abbreviation.

IRL: in real life

TL; DR: too long; didn’t read

GPOY: gratuitous picture of yourself

NSFW: not safe for work

SMH: shaking my head

TBH: to be honest

NBD: no big deal

IMO: in my opinion

JSYK: just so you know
