Another day, another acronym – and we’re back with yet another abbreviation that has a meaning outside of social media as well as multiple interpretations within Instagram, Tik Tok, and Snapchat.

‘GNG’ is not to be confused with the well-known ‘GTG’ abbreviation for ‘Got to Go’ – one which millennials and early social media users be especially familiar with.

On Instagram, ‘GNG’ is actually the short form word for ‘Gang’.

Why Do Users Use ‘GNG’ Instead Of ‘Gang’?

This seems like an odd abbreviation, because it removes just one letter from the original word. However, it is as much a form of slang as it is an online abbreviation nor short hand acronym – with young Instagram and other social users using it in conversation and to caption their posts and stories.

What Else Does GNG Mean?

Outside of Instagram, GNG most commonly means Games Night Games.

So, which version of GNG are you familiar with – and this is an acronym that you would use yourself?
