What Does MB Mean On Snapchat?

Zoe Kramer May 17, 2023

It can sometimes feel like every week there’s a new acronym being used on Snapchat. It makes sense — when you’re texting, it can be a pain to type something out completely. However, it can mean that some users are left in the dark, wondering what certain acronyms stand for. They can be difficult to keep up with, especially if you’re an infrequent user of the app. One of the acronyms to gain popularity lately is MB. If you’ve seen this one floating around but didn’t know what it meant, not to worry. Here is a guide to what does MB mean on Snapchat as well as some other useful acronyms.

What Does MB Mean?

MB usually stands for “My Bad” on Snapchat. This is a casual way to say that something was your fault on social media. For example, “Were you going to make dessert?” “Oh, I forgot, MB. I’ll pick some up on the way.” This is usually reserved for small mistakes rather than significant apologies, since otherwise it might be perceived that you’re downplaying what you did wrong.

Other Meanings Of MB

Another meaning of MB is “Maybe.” Someone might write: “Do you want to go out tonight?” “MB, I’ll see if my headache goes away.” This is usually a way of expressing reservations about deciding either way on a question. However, most people tend to just write out “Maybe” rather than abbreviating it, so this usage of MB is less common.

MB can also stand for “Megabyte.” This is unit for measuring data. For example, “How many MB of space do you have free on your computer?” “About nine hundred.”

It can also stand for “Might Be.” For example, “Is she getting a tattoo?” “She MB, depends on if the artist has time today.” This is fairly similar to the “Maybe” meaning, the main difference being that maybe is an adverb, while might be is a modal verb.
