What’s up is a casual greeting which has seemed to replace, “hello or hi, how ya going?” When someone asks what’s up they want to know if there’s anything new or exciting going on with you.
When people ask what’s up they aren’t really looking to hear about all your problems and the nitty gritty details of your life. A lot of folks won’t really give a toss how you respond.
Of course, your good friends will want to know all the juicy details of what’s going on with you, why your girlfriend dumped you for another girl, how someone shared nude photos of you on Snap Chat and all of the other exciting things going on in your life.
