IFK is a common slang used on social media network sites. It’s common in texting on platforms such as WhatsApp, Snapchat, Instagram, Facebook, Telegram, and others. Here are some different meanings of IFK:
1. I’m F**king kidding:
It’s definitely an F-word slang. Here’s how it can possibly be used in a conversation.
- Person 1: I heard you got a promotion at work, congratulations!
- Person 2: Haha no, I’m just a junior analyst. IFK!
2. I’m freaking kidding:
- Person 1: Did you really win the lottery and quit your job today?!
- Person 2: What? No way, IFK. I was just joking around.
3. I f**king know:
- Person 1: Ugh, I can’t believe our flight got delayed again…
- Person 2: IFK! This airline is so unreliable.
4. I f**king knew:
- Person 1: I failed my calculus exam even though I studied so hard.
- Person 2: Yeah IFK that exam was going to be really difficult.
Another example can be:
- Person 1: The team lost even though they were favored to win.
- Person 2: IFK that was going to happen. Their offense has been struggling.
5. I f**king knew that already:
If you know something in your heart and it happens, this is where IFK can be used. But ‘already’ adds more strength to your point, since you already know what will happen. Examples are:
- Person 1: Did you see the news? The mayor resigned today.
- Person 2: Yup, IFK that was coming after the scandal.
- Person 1: Our meeting tomorrow was moved to 2pm.
- Person 2: IFK that already, you told me earlier.
Here are some other perspectives on how “IFK” can be used in conversational contexts without sounding the obvious f-word.
6. I Freaking Know / I Freakin’ Know:
- Person 1: Did you hear Amanda is dating Blake now?
- Person 2: IFK. She told me last week.
7. I Freaking Knew:
- Person 1: I failed my math test today even though I studied so hard!
- Person 2: IFK that was going to happen. That test was really difficult.
8. I Forgot, Okay / I Forgot, K:
- Person 1: You were supposed to send me those files for the presentation.
- Person 2: Oh right, IFK! I’m sorry, let me send them now.
9. It’s Fine, K?:
- Person 1: I’m so sorry I spilled coffee on your laptop! I’ll pay to get it fixed.
- Person 2: IFK, accidents happen. Don’t worry about it.
10. I Feel Kind:
- Person 1: How are you feeling today?
- Person 2: IFK of happy and relaxed right now 🙂
So in these examples, the F-word adds more frustration, annoyance, or emphasis to the “I know/knew that” sentiment. The tone is more irritated versus just casually acknowledging something.
