Thanks to social media, we have been #Blessed with some of the most ridiculous terms that we can’t help but use in real life. Dictionary.com is acknowledging the popularity of internet terminology and has decided to officially recognize them as words.

On November 11, the online dictionary will be adding several new words, including many of our popular slang words that have gone viral. While the full list of terms has not been released, they have announced the a few we all say the most. Vine star Peaches Monroee and Instagrammer Johnny Versayce – who coined fleek and YAAAS – along with the others who came up with these terms probably felt pretty great when they went viral, but having them put in the dictionary must feel amazing.

Imagine having a vocab test where you had to define fleek. Kids these days get it all. Check out the list of terms being added to the dictionary below.

1. Digital citizen: ​a person who develops the skills and knowledge to effectively use the Internet and other digital technology, especially in order to participate responsibly in social and civic activities.
