ABOUT THIS WORD
What else does SB mean?
Short for snapback, SB is used on social media platform Snapchat for when you want a user to respond back to a snap, or “message.”
How is SB pronounced?[ es-bee ]
Where does SB come from?
Appearing on Urban Dictionary in 2017, SB was born on Snapchat, the popular social media platform that launched in 2011. On the platform, users send snaps (short videos or photos) to one or more users. Not to be confused with a style of baseball hats, a snapback emerged as slang for a snap sent in response.
Younger Snapchatters will offer a TBH (to be honest) in exchange for an SB. This means if you snapback, the user will respond by divulging what they think about you, usually in the form of a self-esteem boosting compliment.
Snapchat itself encourages snapbacks through its Snapstreak feature. If you and another user respond to each other’s snaps within 24 hours over the course of 3 days, you are on a Snapstreak. Next to your fellow messenger’s name, you’ll see the fire emoji along with the number of days the streak has been going on. This incentivizes many users to keep the run alive through snapbacks.
In the world of sneakers, we should briefly note, the acronym SB is used by Nike for their Nike SB line of shoes, where it’s been short for skateboarding since 2002. In sports talk, SB can also stand for Super Bowl.
How is SB used in real life?
Given that the act of doing a snapback is specific to Snapchat, it’s perhaps not that surprising that SB is primarily found on the social media platform. Some people, however, aren’t huge fans of the sb for a tbh culture, finding it vain and attention-seeking, and they post their opinions about it on other social media platforms.
