What does G4U stand for?

Good for you

G4U is a short form used in online chats and text messages, meaning “good for you.” It’s like saying “well done” or “I’m proud of you.”

Although it’s mainly used to give a pat on the back or boost someone’s spirits, it can also be used with a hint of sarcasm. So, it’s not always a thumbs-up or a high five.

Because of its versatility in usage, it can sometimes be misunderstood. The person receiving the message might not get the intended tone. So, G4U is not always the best choice of words, especially when the context is not clear.
