2. What does IG stand for?

I guess

IG is another way to say "I suppose" when unsure of something, whether it be a definitive answer or how you feel. For example, if your friend asks you if you are feeling better after your flu bug, you might respond with, "IG. Still a bit queasy."

People typically use IG online when messaging online or texting, and they may use it by itself or in a sentence. However, be careful when you use it because it is pretty obscure, and most people recognize it as the abbreviation for "Instagram," which may add to the confusion. Also, never use it when your gf asks you if you love her.
