TikTok is a platform where trends come and go so quickly that it is hard to keep up with them. When the users are just catching up on the latest trends and the slang terms being used, a new trend or a new slang term comes up. Gen Z is so much into slang language and they are always inventing new acronyms for every word or phrase. According to them, the use of acronyms allows them to look cool and makes their communication style quick and efficient.
One such acronym or slang term that has gained attention recently is ”PMO.” This acronym has more than one meaning and it depends on the context in which it is used. So, if you saw this slang term on the internet and especially on TikTok and are wondering what it means and in which context it is being used then you have come to the right place. This blog post will help you discover everything about this new term and its different meanings.
What Does PMO Mean on TikTok?
PMO has more than one meaning and this meaning depends on the context of the sentence. According to the Urban Dictionary, ‘’PMO’’ means ‘’put me on.’’ Here it means to connect with something or someone. It is another way of saying ‘’connect me to’’ or ‘’link me to.’’
According to Merriam-Webster, putting someone on to something means giving information about something. It is used to create a connection between a person and a thing. While the former meaning is used when creating a connection between two persons.
Another meaning of PMO that can be seen on TikTok is ‘’piss me off.’’ It is often used to express your frustration about something or someone. The meaning depends on the context in which the phrase is being used. You can easily tell the difference between the meanings of the term by reading the sentence and understanding the context of it.
Different Examples of How PMO Can Be Used
PMO can be used in different ways for example if it is used to connect to someone or if you want to follow someone on social media, you would say ”Hi, can you PMO your Snapchat?” or in another way as ”Hey, PMO to the new guy at college.” In both these examples, PMO is used to create a personal connection between two people.
Another way to use PMO is to connect to a thing or to get information about something. For example, it is used as ”He put me on to that singer.” In this case, it is used as ”PMO to…” but this depends on the context of the sentence. It is used in this way to recommend something to someone that he or she might like.
PMO is also used as ”piss me off” while talking about the things that annoy or frustrate them. For example, ”my professor has started to PMO with these daily assessments.” Or another example could be, ”this kid has started to PMO with his tantrums.”
How to Identify in Which Meaning PMO is Being Used?
When there are three different meanings of a single term then it could become difficult to identify in which meaning it is being used. You cannot always be 100% sure in which meaning it is being used but by understanding the context of what you are talking about you can easily identify the right meaning.
Understanding the meaning of PMO in terms of the 2nd meaning described above is quite easy. Because in this case it is always followed by ‘’to’’ in the sentence. For example, ‘’she PMO to a new show.’’ It is usually used while talking about films, movies, or artists. But this sentence structure is not followed for the other two meanings.
The best way to differentiate between the other two meanings of PMO is to understand the tone. If the person is talking in an annoyed or frustrated tone and uses ”PMO” then it means ”piss me off.” In this context, it is always part of a larger sentence or some explanation. On the other hand, if the tone of the person is friendly and casual then he probably means ”put me on.” If it is used in the sense of ”follow me” then it can be used as a standalone statement and needs no other explanation.
Latest trends and slang terms have become a major part of the video-sharing app, TikTok. One such slang term that was discussed above is ”PMO.” It has three different meanings and which meaning is being used depends on the context. Firstly, it means ‘’put me on’’ as in to connect to someone. Secondly, it is used as ‘’put me on to…’’ to create a connection of someone to any information or any artist, film, show, etc. Thirdly, it stands for ‘’piss me off’’ and is used when someone is talking about something that frustrates them. Which meaning is being used can be identified by understanding the tone and the sentence structure.
