What does WBWYC stand for?

Write back when you can

When you’re chatting online or sending text messages, you might have seen the term WBWYC. It’s an acronym that stands for “write back when you can”. This is a more polite version of the shorter slang “WB”, which just means “write back”.

So, if you’re worried about sounding too pushy when asking for a response, WBWYC is a great choice. It lets the other person know that you’re waiting for their message, but also that you understand they might be busy.

However, keep in mind that adding more letters to the acronym can make it harder for some people to understand. If you’re not sure whether the person you’re messaging will know what it means, it might be safer to stick with the simpler WB.
