What does CYF stand for?

Check your Facebook

CYF is a popular slang term that people often use in text messages to tell someone else to take a look at their Facebook page. It’s a super convenient way to refer to something that’s been posted on your Facebook profile that you might want to check out.

Here’s an example of how it might be used in real life. Let’s say your mom shares an old photo of you, looking quite silly, on your Facebook page for your birthday. Your brother might text you saying, “CYF. Mom posted that photo of you with the clown nose. ;-)”.

Or, it can also be used when something seems off on your Facebook page. For instance, your friend might spot a strange post on your profile and think your account has been compromised. They could send you a message like, “CYF. I think your account might be hacked…”.

So, the next time you see “CYF” pop up in a text, you’ll know it means ‘Check Your Facebook’, and there’s something on your profile that needs your attention.
