smh meaning in text messages
In a world of too many words and the need for constant communication, there is need to constantly use acronyms in our day to day communication. I believe you may have used some of them in your chats or even in a text message. However, what is of interest to us today is the acronym “smh”.
What Does SMH Mean?
SMH stands for a lot of things on the internet. For some people, it represents “So Much Hate” and for some others, it represents “Scratching My Head” But for the purpose of this article, we will be referring to the most popular meaning of this word. And this meaning is “Shaking My Head”
Where Do People Use SMH?
As I have already hinted, the acronym “smh” is mainly used when sending text messages or to increase speed while typing messages on forums (on the web and social media) and in formal or informal chat. Other ways and/or places “smh” is frequently used include”
Yahoo Messenger chats
Why do People Use SMH?
Make no mistake and have no doubt, communication will be too long and too boring if everything is to be said in full and at all times. To make sure that communication is as fluid as possible and meaningful too, smh is used strategically by people to make the whole thing easy. I will now briefly outline some of the reasons people use smh and the benefits of using it. Let’s go”
Smh increases the speed of communication between two or more people in a discussion. For instance, instead of saying something like “Did you know that that man spent the whole time lamenting the death of his cat instead saving his documents from the fire in his building? Shaking my head”, it can be shortened to “Did you know that that man spent the whole time lamenting the death of his cat instead saving his documents from the fire in his building? Smh”
Again, smh prevents unnecessary repetition in communication. This is particularly useful to stammers and in the prevention of lisping.
Lastly, it makes chat more interesting to the parties taking part in it.
