How to Make the Instagram Urban Dictionary Name Trend
Hold on, hold on. . . let’s check the year, okay? Urban Dictionary is suddenly all over our
My space Instagram feed, and it’s a blast from the early 2000s. The online dictionary, which hosts user-generated definitions for slang words (and apparently human names), is enjoying a major renaissance thanks to the trend viral Instagram Story from Instagram user @bymayuuu “Show us your name in the urban dictionary”. The trend is to go to the Urban Dictionary website, search for your name, and post its definition to your Instagram story. No, that’s definitely not always accurate (mine says I only date guys whose names start with “D”), but it sure is fun! The trend uses Instagram’s popular “Add Yours” story sticker, which gave way to a handful of viral moments in the past month, such as “Who are you in love with?” Instagram trend and photo channel “We will plant a tree for every animal photo”. If you’d like to participate in this Instagram Add Yours prompt, here’s how.
How to Make the “Show Us Your Name in the Urban Dictionary” Trend Add Your Instagram Story
- When you come across the “Show us your name in the urban dictionary” sticker on someone’s Instagram story, tap the “Add yours” button to join.
- Without closing Instagram, go to the Urban Dictionary website, search for your name and choose the best “definition” you like.
- Take a screenshot of the definition, save it to your camera roll, go back to Instagram and choose the screenshot as the background for the “Show us your name in the urban dictionary” sticker. Then post.
Yes, it really is as simple as that. Now go ahead and get started on this urban dictionary trend yourself before the next one rolls around. (And believe us, there will be be next.)
