What does BBS Mean in Texting?

BBS is an acronym for “be back soon”. It is a phrase we use when we want to let the other person know that we will return to the conversation short, but we have to leave. Or you might be talking about a different event where you need to be back soon.

Whichever the case may be, you can always shorten the phrase “be back soon” with BBS. That is the beauty of texting.
