What does BRBS mean in online chat?

Be right back soon

Those who are going AFK for a bit use BRBS to mean "be right back soon." This acronym signals that the person will return ASAP (likely after taking care of something IRL).

BRBS is used quite rarely, as it is a bit redundant ("right back" and "soon" mean the same thing) and lengthier than both BRB and BBS. Therefore, if someone sends you BRBS, they likely want you to know they'll be back very, very quickly - hopefully before you've even finished reading this definition.
