    What does pu mean

    The term "pu" is an acronym for "pop up".

    For example, someone might post "So bored, someone pu!"

     A literal translation would be "get on Snapchat and message me".

    Where did pu come from?

    The phrase began on Snapchat.

    The words “pop up” come from the way notifications commonly appear on phone screens.

    When someone sends a message on social media , the recipient will have the message “pop up” on their screen.

    What other abbreviations do people use on social media?

    LOL - "Laugh out loud", or "lots of love" for those higher up the age ladder, is certainly one of the most common abbreviations.

    Interestingly, its former meaning can differ in loudness of laughter, depending on the number of Os you use.

    LMAO - "Laugh my ass off" is quite self-explanatory, and is an extremely popular choice of abbreviation when showing amusement.

    It could be argued LMAO shows a higher degree of humour than LOL, and its ability to be adapted to LMFAO shows a greater flexibility in meaning (you can guess what the F stands for).

    YOLO - An abbreviation that does make many people keel over slightly out of cringe - " you only live once " looks rather well placed in an American frat party surrounded by red plastic cups.

    Use it in the local boozer on a Friday night, however, and you'll receive a slightly icier reception.

    ASAP - this one is pretty well known. The fact that one would even think to abbreviate "as soon as possible" down to ASAP is a very good indication of the little time its creator had.

    FML - this ruder abbreviation stands for "F**k my life". It works well when someone is completely out of ideas and in need of some self-pity - which, in the year of 2020 is probably quite often.
