Do you feel too old that you can’t keep up with the recent internet jargon? Don’t fret.

A TikTok content creator named Tita G released a “guide” to the new terms mostly being used by the youth today on social media.

She uploaded this guide called “Tita G’s Unofficial Guide: Bagets Slang” on her Facebook page on June 9 to mark her first-year anniversary on the video-sharing service.

“These terms and its meanings are based on online information, videos and use cases. Please let me know if you have any other sources!” she said.

The TikTok creator also took out the term “Yassify” which was originally on her post to cross-check its meaning.
