What does WYM stand for?

What you mean

People send WYM (what you mean) when they want you to clarify your previous statement. For example, if you post a vague Facebook update, your friends and family may respond with WYM, in hopes you'll share specifics about your status.

WYM is an even-shorter version of WDYM and WDYMBT. However, outside the world of social media, WDYM is used more commonly than WYM (possibly because it's grammatically correct).
