What does CWD mean on instagram

The famous Instagram slang, CWD is the popular response to the acronyms S4S, TBH and OOTD. This one here is the abbreviated term for the phrase Comment When Done.  This acronym is usually helpful to get new followers to your account that would eventually boost your account’s popularity.

Facebook might have seen a lot of CWD but its Instagram that has the most trending #CWD. It can be written as a hashtag, in the comment section and even as a status update.

Alternate meanings of CWD

  1. Chronic Wasting Disease
  2. Current Working Directory
  3. Children With Disabilities
  4. Cold Winter Day
  5. Commercial Work Data
  6. Customer Want Data
  7. Chemical Work Database
  8. Computer Web Design


The use of this acronym is probably the simplest of all. Just how S4S and OOTD function, it’s pretty similar to that. When someone posts a photograph of themselves or a desirable destination, we often notice this acronym in the form of hashtag present there.

Using this hashtag gives you a scope to make more connections and showcase your work and talent. Like in S4S or Shout out for Shout out, People trade with their profiles so that you can get a mention of your work if you mention the other one.

A #TBH also works with the same motto. So, the ideal response to these particular hashtags come with #CWD. This acronym is an assurance policy. Every time you add this, you can be sure that the other person will mention you to get mentioned in your feed. And if you have a lot of followers, it becomes more or less a win-win situation for both of them.

In the end, it all comes down to how much desirable you are on those laptop screens.
