what does yh mean

This particular acronym is also a part of the conversation starter club and is considered to be the most used response ever. Literally if every time I get a penny when someone would respond as YH, I’d already owned 20 houses. On a serious note though, YH is the abbreviated term for the phrase Yeah.

In every situation of life whether online or in person, we wish to affirm something, YH is the very first word that comes up. Exceptionally famous on texting apps but also has its broad fan base in the meme world (Crack Kid’s YEAH).

This acronym is one of the most common ones used in our day to day life. YH is a way of confirming to something or someone and is also used to assure someone.

On the virtual web, it is commonly used in a lot of online chat rooms and social media per say. Though the slang isn’t too extraordinary and only skips two alphabets, it is widely accepted in that format. The initial idea behind this abbreviation was really to save time and energy and to convey as much information as possible.

Even when we talk to someone on chat, we expect them to reply us within seconds. Because if they don’t, it starts giving the other person the idea that you might not be interested in talking. Hence, to save time, this became an ideal response.

It isn’t very common to find YH as hashtag or status updates because the use is mainly while having a conversation.
