The internet is infamous for coming up with its jargon and slang. Tightly-knit online communities such as Reddit and Twitch have tons of slang that might seem complete gibberish to someone who isn’t aware of the context and history behind them.
Other social media platforms such as Instagram, Twitter, and Snapchat aren’t behind thought. When it comes to Snapchat, while the app is more of a messaging app than a social media network, it still has come up with a fair amount of slang that its users often exchange when sending snaps.
In this article, we’re looking at what WSG means on Snapchat, where it can be used, and what relevance it holds on other platforms.

What is the meaning of WSG?
The term ‘WSG’ is essentially short for the phrase “What’s Good?”
The term is generally used as an icebreaker or conversation starter and works as a replacement for standard greetings such as “What’s up” or “How’s it going”.
However, that’s not the only use case for the term. Depending upon the conversation’s context, the term can also represent phrases like “white girl status” or “with special guest” which are often used in tandem with pop-culture references, so be sure to pay attention to the context of a conversation.
Snapchat isn’t the only app around where people might be using WSG as well. Many users on other popular social media platforms such as Instagram, Twitter, Reddit, TikTok Facebook and even Twitch, although having a lot of their common slang, also use the term.
The expression is usually meant to be said in an upbeat and non-irritant manner, depending on the speaker’s tone (or, in this case, the text) can be conveyed in a negative connotation as well.
