Right now, there is a video of a man cosplaying as Exotic Joe wearing daisy dukes dancing to trap music on For You page and there is also one putting Coke and Mentos in his toilet. Everyone knows that Tiktok is that weird.
As stated before, FYP could also mean fixed your post. This phrase is usually posted when another user edits and reposts the video of someone. As you can guess, the idea is like they fixed the original content by making some changes.
The term CEO stands the same thing that it stands for in real life, Chief Executive Officer. By definition, a CEO can be described as the highest ranking person in a company or the other institution.
