If you aren’t up to date on the most recent internet acronyms, you may not have heard of “IYKYK.”
Read on to find out what this word means and how to use it.
It’s better if you know.
If you know, you know.
A post or message will make sense to some people, but not to others.
This is what people who know what they’re talking about will notice right away in the post.
IYKYK and “iykyk” are both ways to write it.
Often, IYKYK is used as a hashtag when people add it to the caption of a picture or video on social media sites like Instagram.
“Last night was so much fun!” is what someone might say when they post a video of themselves at a party.
There must have been a specific event at that gathering that only the people who were there will know about.

If it’s on a big, public platform like TikTok or Twitter, the content is likely trying to reach a very specific but very large group of people with the same thing.
If the post refers to a specific type of activity or hobby, you would understand if you did that kind of thing or had done that kind of thing before.
A person who makes music may make sense to you if they post a video with the title “Music production woes #iykyk.”
Also, a group of people who are fans of something, like a TV show or a video game.
The IYKYK scenario can also happen when people in the same age group or with the same upbringing have the same experience.
When someone says, “When I’m in a virtual class and my camera is off, #iykyk,” it means that they are joking.
It might make sense to a teenager who went to school during virtual classes, but someone who has never done that might not understand what this post is about.
