If you are watching content on TikTok, you are probably going to come across a lot of slang words and sayings. Indeed, this is the app where people love to share old and new songs, follow challenges and trends and create their own vocabulary.
If you do not know the meaning of slang words and abbreviations, it means that you are not getting the most out of your TikTok experience. For example, do you know what PMO means? If the answer is no, you should read on and we are going to explain everything you need to know.
What Does PMO Mean?
If you sit and try to guess what PMO means, your head might go blank. Indeed, there is nothing that comes to mind when you try to guess what each letter stands for. But, once we explain its meaning, it might make a little more sense. Essentially, PMO stands for Put Me On. Still not sure what it means? Well, it is like saying to some to ‘hook you up’ or tell you all of the gossip or information on something.
Let’s take PMO and use it in a sentence so that you can make sure that you know what it means. For example, say one of your friends knows all of the latest details about a party that is coming up and you want to know when it is and where it is going to be so that you can attend. You can ask your friend to PMO. In other words, share all of the details with you.
But, you should also be aware that there are other meanings of PMO. You will have to think about the context in which an abbreviation is used in order to figure out what it really means. For example, one of the most common meanings of PMO in the texting world is ‘piss me off.’ This is what you would say to someone that is annoying you. So, if you see it in a context where someone could be annoyed with something you said, this is most likely what it is going to mean.

Therefore, you are going to have to consider when the person is using PMO. This is going to help you choose a definition that is going to make sense. For example, if someone wants to find something on TikTok, they are likely to use PMO to mean put on me. But, if they are telling a story in a video that they are annoyed about or replying to a hateful comment then it is more likely that PMO means piss me off.
What Other Slang Do You Find on TikTok?
PMO is not the only abbreviation you are going to find on TikTok. In fact, there is a lot out there and you might want to know what they all mean. Some are self-explanatory and you can guess. Others, you will need a little bit more help with. So, here are some of the most common slang words you are going to find on the TikTok app.
One you are going to see in videos and comments is TFW. This is short for ‘that feeling when.’ So, it can be used in contexts where you want to demonstrate how you are feeling in a certain situation. Then, you are also going to see SMH a lot. This is the abbreviation for ‘shaking my head.’ This can be used in two ways. For example, some people are using it when they agree with a certain situation. But, there are also some users on TikTok that are using it to mean that they disagree with someone. This is going to be a case of looking at the rest of the comment or video and trying to figure out what one they are referring to.
On TikTok, you are going to see a lot of different types of videos. For example, some people like to act out a scenario or show their reaction to something. This is often going to be referred to as a POV video. You will see this referred to in a hashtag or comment, as well as some creators writing ‘POV’ on the video in text. Essentially, POV stands for ‘point of view’. Therefore, this is meaning showing a situation from your eyes and giving your opinion on what is happening.
When you are watching videos on TikTok, you might see the creator say ‘DC’. Well, this is not in reference to DC Comics. Instead, it is short for ‘dance credits’ and it will often be used beside a username. Well, this is a way to credit the original creator of a dance. So, if someone is dancing or trying out a challenge, they are not claiming that they created it. Instead, they are thanking the person and not stealing their ideas.
When you are on TikTok, you are going to come across a lot of different slang terms and abbreviations. Taking a moment to learn some of them is going to save you from a lot of confusion later on. For example, one you are going to see a lot is PMO. Let’s summarize what we have learned.
There are a lot of different meanings for PMO depending on what context it is used, as well as what platform you are on. For example, if you are on TikTok, it might mean ‘put me on’.
