SNAPCHAT has been around for nearly a decade, giving its users plenty of time to come up with their own app-specific lexicon.
Many of the platform's 500million users rely on acronyms to trim down some requests and phrases.

One such abbreviation is "sb", which stands for "snap back".
It's used for when you want a user to respond back to a snap, or "message."
One example of the term in the wild might be "sb to be on my private".
This means that, if you want to be in someone's private story, just send them a snap requesting to be featured.
If someone, on the other hand, says "don’t sb", then it means that they do not want you to reply.
It's not the only abbreviation that Snapchat fans are fond of.
Sfs, for instance, means "snap for snap" or "shoutout for shoutout".
Another popular Snapchat acronym is "gms", which stands for "good morning streaks".
"Gms" is a quick and easy message to send to keep a streak going without having to be particularly inventive.
