If you’ve seen someone put the string of characters OFC in your text conversation — or maybe you casually saw it online somewhere — you might be quite confused. What is that supposed to mean anyway? It’s an acronym that stands for something, though it might not add any value to the conversation whether you know the meaning of it or not.
So what does it mean?
OFC is a short hand way to say “Of course.” It can be used in a variety of tones, but usually it’s no better than saying “obviously.” Here’s how you could use it in conversation, as an example:
- Amanda: Are you still planning on coming to the meeting Friday afternoon?
- You: Ofc
It would certainly be better to just spell out the entire sentence in the professional world, but it’s no problem using it with friends and family members.
