What does AFAICT stand for in texts and online?

As far as I can tell

AFAICT is an acronym that stands for "As far as I can tell," which is similar to saying, "From what I know..." It is most often used in text messages and online.

The acronym is most often used in conversations when trying to clarify that the statement you are sharing is limited to what you know. It acts like a qualifier for your opinion, which you believe, but also acknowledge could be flawed since it is only taking into account your experience.

The acronym may be used by teenagers to older adults. But it is not used much, since AFAIK is a shorter and more common acronym that means the same thing.


"AFAICT, she seems like a nice girl."
