If you are texting with young people, you might often come across the abbreviation ofc. You may not be able to immediately guess its meaning, but it is a very common response to things that you may text. What does it mean?
OFC = of course
As a shortcut for the term of course, ofc is common in texts! Whether you are talking to your friends or your coworkers, telling them that you will ofc help them means that you are definitely going to help, and that you are happy to do so!
Unlike some other abbreviations, such as lol, ofc is not used in speech. It is only seen in texts, though you may also see it used on social media and in casual writing.

Walter and Elaine
Walter: Elaine, I’m just checking to see how your progress is. When do you think you’ll be done?
Elaine: Putting the finishing touches on the project now. do you want me to send it to you when I’m done?
Walter: Sure! Ofc it would be great if you add the other members of the group so they can see the final product too.
Elaine: ofc, not a problem. Thanks!
Note on usage: ofc is a very casual way of texting, especially when you send it in a message with your phone. It is recommended that you spell out of course if you are writing to a boss or using the phrase in any type of formal situation.
