#MCM

noun; other word formation type Initialism
Man Crush Monday; a common hashtag used on social media to show appreciation or liking for a boy
 
This term has developed within the past couple of years as the prevalence of social media in American culture has grown. The hashtag was first created by Chris Messina in his tweet on August 23, 2007 that suggested using the pound symbol to group similar things, people or ideas together. Two years later, Twitter introduced the ability to search and find tweets that contained hashtags. The launch of the photo social networking app called Instagram in October 2010, and the launch of Instagram’s Weekend Hashtag Project in November 2011, lead to the presence of hashtags on the new social media platform, Instagram. Within recent years, hashtags have been a common trend used to group themed posts. Some hashtags include #MCM (#mancrushmonday), #TBT (#throwbackthursday), #FBF (#flashbackfriday), and #WCW (#womancrushwednesday). These hashtags are commonly used as not only a grouping mechanism, but as a justification or reason for posting a seemingly random picture. Man Crush Monday posts usually include a picture of a certain male that a person likes, finds attractive, or whose friendship they appreciate. The crush can be a friend, boyfriend or celebrity. The term #MCM has now expanded from Instagram to other social media outlets such as Twitter, Tumblr, Facebook, etc. http://techacute.com/the-history-of-the-hashtag/ http://wersm.com/the-complete-history-of-instagram/
