What does OICN stand for?

Oh, I see now

OICN stands for "Oh, I see now," which is another way of saying "I get it now!" It is most often used online and in text messages.

It is typically utilized as an exclamation related to some sort of epiphany where the figurative light bulb turned on in someone's head and the person now grasps a concept that had previously eluded him or her. It could also be a literal light bulb turning on and the person can now see something that was not visible before, but that is not likely.

You will most likely see it online in some sort of chat room or forum where a complex topic is being discussed. You may also send or receive it in a text about a confusing issue.

OICN is a variation of the more common OIC acronym, which stands for "Oh, I see." It is a sort of hybrid acronym/abbreviation with the "C" representing "See."
