What does BIAB stand for?

Back in a bit

If you ever find yourself needing to step away from a gathering, whether it’s in person or online, you can type “BIAB” to let everyone know. This slang term is commonly used in online chats and text conversations. BIAB is just a shorter version of the acronym “BBIAB”.

These acronyms, including BIAB, are part of a larger group used to indicate that you’ll return in a short time. Some other examples of these acronyms are “BRB” and “BBS”.

However, keep in mind that the term “a bit” in “BIAB” is quite flexible. It could mean a quick 30 minutes or a longer period like half a day. So, if your plans rely on the person’s return, make sure to ask them for a more specific time frame.
