  1. i hav not used the whole of full forms given here..wish 2 use em’ but not possible coz ma brain is not soo big to store em’..:P

  2. I agree with Aditi ther r so many other sfs and one word can have so many sfs lyk eg nice can be nc like Aditi said or it can even be nyc

    • Off course some more can be added, but you see, we cannot add shortcuts to every word.
      Abbreviation is just for a quick reply, which is UNDERSTOOD and ACCEPTED by everyone (if you get what i mean).

  3. Does Google actually have a backronym?
    And as for Windows…they could be mere hoaxes.
    It would be better if you could provide authentic links for all these full forms.
    And btw, thanks for the backronyms of LG, HTC etc. They were really useful.

  4. I guess u should add ‘Tqsm’ : thank you so much..coz sometimes ppl get confused…though It’s rlly gud nd helpful…. Thanks dude… 🙂

    • Can you? Of course, you can. However, if the used short forms are not so common among people then they will have difficulty understanding it.

  5. I recently started using social networks and it was a great trouble to understand these short froms when my Frndz texted me. But this helped me a lot to understand them. I’ll try my best to use them as my brain has the storage space for it.

  6. It was very helpful. I will try to get all those in my head. I think of using the short forms but it dont get clicked in my mind at the right time. 😅😅 However, the companies full forms were informative. 👍👍
