What does SFS stand for?

Sorry for spam

Ever received a flurry of messages from someone and noticed they used the acronym ‘SFS’? This is short for “sorry for spam”, a term people often use to say sorry for sending multiple messages one after the other.

Let’s say, for instance, your friend John bombards you with 10 text messages within a few minutes. He might use ‘SFS’ at the start of one of those messages. He’s using this slang to acknowledge that he’s sent you a whole bunch of messages, perhaps more than he should have.

In essence, when someone uses ‘SFS’, they’re admitting they’ve been spamming – that is, sending lots of messages in quick succession. So next time you see ‘SFS’, you’ll know it’s an apology for a message overload!

Example for using ‘SFS’ in a conversation
