40 Most Used Abbreviation On Social Media

group of friends having a good time laughing talking

Our promise to help you become fully fluent in French would not be complete if we didn’t address the abbreviations aka the sms language. Just so we’re clear: we do not encourage the extensive use of abbreviations to write on social media ever. We believe this is how we slowly but surely stop knowing how to spell the full word. However, we can’t deny the fact that most people use it, and in these times of confinement it might come in handy if you need to understand French-speaking friends on Whatsapp, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and more.
