Another day, another acronym – but what does it mean?

TikTok is packed full of abbreviations, acronyms, words, and phrases – many of which feel like they’ve been made up exclusively by TikTok users to communicate amongst themselves and share specific messages.

But while some make headlines for their controversy or through causing offence, others are fairly standard. PMO is, you’ll be pleased to hear, one that falls into the latter category.

PMO stands for ‘Put Me On’.

It is used on TikTok as a way of asking someone to recommend something or introduce them to someone who they might get along with.

Examples of this in use include,

  • PMO with that new girl at school
  • PMO with the movie you were talking about

As is so often the case though, this collection of three letters can induce a different meaning…

Other Examples of PMO Phrases

PMO means ‘Put Me On’ for most TikTok users.

But it can also mean ‘P*ss Me Off’ or ‘P*sses Me Off’.

In this case, PMO would be used in the following way:

  • That really PMO
  • What is it about him that PMO?

What’s particularly interesting about these two meaning is how different they are. Seeing PMO in conversation or referenced in comments on TikTok may leave you questioning the meaning of the user – are they irritated or excited?

Let us know which version of PMO you are most likely to use!
