ISO stands for "In search of," and is typically seen on social media and in classified and want ads. It is used to communicate that you are looking for something or someone.
While ISO was more often seen in ads in newspapers before the 2000s, the acronym is now more commonly seen on social sites, like Facebook or Twitter. People typically start their post with "ISO," and then follow it with a description of something they need.
One common thing often searched for is a reference for a service like furnace repair or landscaping. People also commonly look for used items others are looking to get rid of, usually for free, like hand-me-down kids shoes or furniture.
