What does Notif mean?

‘Notif’ is slang for ‘Notification’

Ever drowned in the sea of alerts on your phone or social media? These notifications, or “notifs” as they’re popularly called, come from everywhere – missed calls, unread texts, new posts on social media, pending software updates and more.

The term ‘notif’ is an abbreviated form of ‘notification’. It’s a trendy way to refer to these alerts, especially on social media platforms like Twitter, Instagram, TikTok, Twitch, YouTube, and Facebook. You’ll mostly find youngsters using this term.

Don’t be surprised if you see teens and young adults boasting about the number of notifs they get when their content becomes a hit or expressing disappointment when their post doesn’t do well. That’s just the way they communicate in the digital space.
