What is “YOLO”?


Teenagers are using it and I admit it, I didn’t know what it was either. I had to ask my son last year what it meant when I saw the word on the social media sites. Now, you probably see it everywhere.

YOLO is an acronym for You Only Live Once. It’s similar to the term “carpe diem” and to enjoy life!

If you feel like you’re out of the loop with the text-speak and IM (instant message) chatter, take a look here at some other acronyms being used today.
