An Academic Look at F2F

F2F is classified as a cyber term as opposed to an initialism abbreviation or an acronym. Initially, cyber term terms were introduced for brevity, but, particularly with the advent of predictive texting and on-screen keyboards, they are now mostly employed for fun. Cyber terms differ from icons because they are not pictorial representations.

F2F can be both an adjective, as in "the two men had a face-to-face conversation" or as an adverb, if referring to direct confrontation (e.g., "she came face-to-face with her attacker)."
