what does afk mean
‘AFK’ is ‘Away from Keyboard’.
AFK is used in live chatting to advise people that you will not be responding for the few minutes as you will be away from the computer. AFK is commonly used with a descriptor like “afk bio” (you are going to the washroom), or “afk phone” (you are answering a phone call).
AFK is a very common expression. AFK can be used in both uppercase and lowercase form.
Just remember: typing entire sentences in uppercase is considered rude shouting.
Example of AFK usage:
(Envy:) omg, I just got a legendary drop from this quest momb!
(Puppey:) (no response)
(Envy:) GUYS! Check out my new legendary!
(Puppey:) I was afk taking the dogs out. Wow, congrats on that new pair of gloves! That’s awesome!
The AFK expression, like many other Internet expressions, is part of online conversation culture.
