Word for the day: TBH

I've been irritated about this TBH2x thing. I know that it stands for, To Be Honest, but there are a lot of post saying, "Like for TBH". What do they mean about that? When I ask them, they'll just say, "just join us... TBH means To Be Honest...". There are also lots of people posting to another person's wall saying, "TBH, your cute...", even though they don't know each other or not that close. What sickness is it? I think my fellow countrymen have encountered that. Have you encountered that too?

Maybe some of them are too young to have heard the original, full phrase before? Maybe they genuinely don't know what it means? The others are probably just idiots and/or posted without really thinking about what they're saying. Ignore them. :D

I think they are posting it for attention or they just think doing it is being cool. They are being plastic, they post something to a person's wall saying, "TBH, you're so cute..." even though they were enemies. I think they use "TBH" to say the opposite to what they say to a person.

These are just a bunch of teenagers thinking their cool and post all these slang words. I hate when I come across truth is... and then they expect you to write stuff on their wall truth is i love you or truth is your cute, that's annoying too. I don't get on facebook much anymore because too much dumb drama and stupid post on there now a days.

Yes, I hate that one too. I wonder why can't they just use the formal way of texting. Have a great day to you too! :)

I actually have never heard of that saying before seeing your post. I read it and was scratching my head. I think it's the new word just LIKE was.
