What does S mean?


When you see the letter “S” all by itself in a message, it might be a bit puzzling. In slang, it’s a super quick way of saying “yes”. However, it’s not widely used and can come off as more baffling than practical. The letter “y” is another shorthand for “yes”, but it’s a bit more common and recognizable than “s”.

Technically, typing “s” does save you a bit of time, as it’s two characters shorter than “yes”. But, because it’s not very well known, it can be hard for the recipient to figure out what you mean. They might just think you made a mistake and hit the wrong key.

If you decide to use “s” as a slang term, it’s best to do so when confirming something in a text or online chat. Just make sure you’re talking to someone who’s familiar with this kind of slang, or they might just think you’re not very good at typing.
