S/O is shorthand for "shout out," a message meant to send thanks, congratulations, or appreciation to a person, organization, etc. People often use S/O on social media, but they may also use it in texts and online messages.

For example, a person may post on a social site, "S/O to my boy Blue for graduating from university today!"
