With so many acronyms and abbreviations to get your head around on Instagram, you might be wondering how many you really need to know about.

The fact is, though, acronyms like SFS are being used almost daily by countless users – and if you don’t know what they mean, then you run the risk of being left behind.

SFS stands for ‘Shoutout For Shoutout’ and is a way of asking other users to share a specific post or piece of content, on the understanding that the favour will be returned.

SFS is, to some degree, a loose form of collaboration. While no formal agreement is written up or signed by users, it is a form of collaboration where a user will ask their followers to help spread the word about their account and/or content, with the favour being returned.

Who Uses SFS?

Typically, SFS is the kind of acronym that is used by creators and influencers, who want to expand the reach of their posts and earn more followers as well as more engagement on their content.

By asking other influencers and creators specifically to share their content, creator account managers will use SFS to widen the reach of their posts – promising to do the same to promote the other users’ content in return.

SFS is an easy way of asking other Instagram users to share your content and shoutout about your profile to their own network. Is SFS something you are keen to start using – or will you save social media acronyms for the next generation?
