Social Media Slang Parents Need to Know About

Teen-with-Cell-phoneIf you are a parent and have teenagers you know that texting and social media are the main ways teenagers communicate these days. What you may not know is what those weird acronyms your teen uses actually means. Youth Leader Stash has provided a few acronyms that I believe you need to know about.

NOOB – Newbie
FRAPE – Hacking someone’s social profile without permission
LMIRL – Let’s meet in real life
ASL – Age, Sex, Location
GNOC – Get naked on camera
FWB – Friends with benefits
PAW – Parents are watching
PIR – Parent in room
POS – Parent over shoulder
TDTM – Talk dirty to me
STR – Send to receive pictures
143 – I love you
CD9 – Code 9 My parents are around
FTF – Face to face
FYEO – For your eyes only

Most of the acronyms above have sexual meanings and motive behind them. Sexting, sending sexual explicit messages and pictures via text and social media, is huge in teen culture. Also, many of the acronyms above show that teens have ways to make sure you don’t catch a glimpse of something they may be sending or posting.
