Snapchat is a platform famous for its disappearing messages and fun interface, used by millions of people to regularly interact with their friends and followers.
Over the years, the app has become fertile ground for more candid and less inhibited conversations. Here, acronyms not only save time but also provide privacy and sometimes ambiguity.
IMY is no exception and is used to convey an idea that may be too complex or sensitive to fully express in a casual conversation. If you come across this term on Snapchat and you’re not sure what it means, here’s everything you need to know.
What does ‘imy’ mean?
