There are many slangs on TikTok that you may not be familiar with and you are wondering what they mean. You are perhaps confused by those slang on TT and you don’t have the slightest clue of what they are. So in this blog, I’ve provided some of the coolest ones that people use on TT all the time. So if you are ready to learn them let’s jump right in.

What does ratio mean on TikTok?

Put simply, it means that you or someone else’s comments are way more than their likes. In other words, if you are ratioed you’ll have more comments on your videos compared to the number of likes you get and this is not a good thing.

What does FYP mean on TikTok?

It is one of those nice words or hashtags we see on TT all the time. In fact, it means For You Page “so what does that mean? If you go to a TikTok landing page at the top you’ll see For You, and these videos are what TT thinks you may like.

To make this a little clear, users on TT use the FYP hashtag to ask TT to get their videos on the “For You Page “. It doesn’t necessarily make TT or its algorithm get a video on the “For You Page” just based on an FYP hashtag, however, in many cases it does.

In other words, we simply use this hashtag so that our video goes to other users’ “For You Page” and gets more views and likes.

What does IB mean on TikTok?

The word ib or #ib stands for “inspired by”. So when someone on TT uses this ib hashtag stuff in their video, actually they are trying to say that they are not the creator of that content. However, they are inspired by the content that they recreated that content, or in other words, they try to give credit for that specific content that inspired them.

What does pushing 🅿 mean on TikTok?

Actually, this one doesn’t have any specific meaning! Even people who use it do not have a clear understanding of it.  Let’s see where it came from and what it means. Actually, after the release of a rap song called “Pushing P” that went viral, this became a trend among social media users including TT users as well.

Its meaning can be a little vague so let me shed some light on it. Mostly when users on TT use this P emoji they are referring to something positive.

So for example, if you are a good and generous person and treat your friend well that’s P, but if you are mean to your friend that’s not P! It can be whatever positive thing we talk about.

Next time when your girl tries to be mean to you, you can go ahead and tell her, hey that’s not P! I hope you get the idea.

What does AS mean on TokTok?

It stands for Adult Swim. You may wonder what adult swim is. It is a network of cartoons that are mostly suitable for adults and they are broadcasted from the same channel that shows cartoons for children. In fact, after a cartoon that is for children ends, there are commercial breaks or advertisements that show that adult cartoons are about to start. Now in TikTok people make their own commercial breaks also known as bumps to show their followers how creative they are.

What does POV mean on TikTok?

It is simply point of view. So when we see a video with this hashtag in it, this means that the creators’ points of view are involved in it.

Videos with POV hashtag are kind of attractive and this hashtag helps creators to express themselves and it attracts users to watch more of the creators’ videos. This hashtag also zhuzh things up a little and you can use it on your videos, especially if you want to show your PVO as well!
