What does YOYO stand for?

You’re on your own

When you receive a message with the acronym YOYO, it’s a casual way of saying “you’re on your own.” No need to panic, though – it’s just a friendly reminder that you’re responsible for whatever comes next.

However, the term YOYO can also have other meanings. It might be a playful insult, calling someone a fool. Or, it could simply be a reference to a classic toy: a yo-yo, with its string and spinning motion. The meaning should be clear from the rest of the conversation.

So, whether you’re being told to take charge, being teased, or talking about toys, YOYO has got you covered. Just remember to use it in the right context!
