How 'bout you?

HBY (how 'bout you) is a simple way of asking someone how they feel about the topic you're discussing. For example, while discussing a movie, you could send your friend "I liked it. HBY?" Provided your friend understands what HBY means, they'll respond with their opinion of the movie.
