What does OMFG stand for?

Oh my freaking gosh

OMFG is an abbreviation for “oh my freaking gosh”, although a more crude version of this phrase is also commonly used. It’s a more forceful way of saying OMG, often used when a simple OMG doesn’t feel strong enough to convey the speaker’s feelings of surprise or enthusiasm.

It’s one of the most widely used and oldest acronyms in text and chat language. You’ll often find it in the messages of people who are incredibly passionate or emotional about something.

So, if you see OMFG popping up in a conversation, know that the person is feeling some pretty intense emotions!
