"PM" is a common abbreviation for "postmeridian," which refers to the hours after noon (and before midnight). You'll typically see it after a time for an event to specify whether it's happening in the morning or the evening.
People use pm in all types of contexts, whether in emails or texts, online, or in person. For example, you might text your friend to meet you at Kevin's house at 7 pm.
Conversely, if the time is before noon, it is known as "antemeridian" or "am." So, for example, if a work meeting is at 11 in the morning, you would email your coworkers that the budgetary meeting is at 11 am.
Just so you know, the show starts at 6:00 PM.
Thanks. So pumped!
When someone plans to PM you, it means they're going to send you a "private message." Forum and social media users use this acronym when they intend to message another user directly, rather than post a public comment. (On some platforms, such as Twitter, users may instead refer to PMs as DMs.)
PMs are used to discretely communicate information that is either sensitive or relevant to only the message's recipient. For example, if a user wants to meet you IRL, they will likely PM you their address, rather than post it publicly.
