JK is one out of thousands of internet slangs or acronyms online. JK means Just Kidding. It is not a fallacy when I say people use the acronym JK more often than any other known acronym. JK is used when you want someone to know you were just being playful with a statement you have earlier uttered. Most times people use 'just kidding' when they observe a change in the countenance of the second person, which means the person is not happy with whatever that has been said.

Invariably, people use the acronym when they don't really mean what they are saying or what they have said. Can you imagine how horrible you would feel when someone fooled you about your poor results, only for you to find out the person was just kidding. Never get upset by the word because people have this special way of trying to fool their friends and later tell them they are just kidding.

JK may stand for just kidding. There are some people who use this when they have genuinely sent a joke to another person and they want to let the other person know that this is truly a joke. You may also send this in a sarcastic way.

There may be instances when you would like to let the other person how you truly feel but you would like to gauge first how the person would react. If the person is already getting agitated or is reacting negatively, you may use JK in order to lighten up the situation. This can be hard to do though especially if you are serious about what you are trying to say.

There are so many acronyms, slangs online, getting to know all of them be extremely difficult, but knowing the popular ones might savage the situation. One of those popular acronyms is JK, which simply means Just Kidding.

JK is a very common slang on social media, people use it when chatting with their friends. 'Just kidding' means you are not serious what whatever you said that probably did not go well with the recipient. You know, some people are good at teasing or telling some craps about you even in your face, so to let you know that they don't mean what they are saying they will use JK which means 'I'm just kidding'.

People use JK at the end of a sentence, so that they would have achieved what they wanted before you realize they were just kidding. For example, someone might decide to say, ''Why do you look so unkempt this morning......Jk''. The person includes JK to let you know he's not serious about the comment.
