Recently featured on the MaleMinded Tumblr is a hilariously accurate image surrounding the ever-so-debatable issue of 'What Texting Heyyyyy Means.' This simple black-and-white image sums up what everyone is secretly thinking while busily typing an SMS to a lover, acquaintance or stranger.

The image deciphers the meaning behind the number of Y's used in a text message at the end of the familiar greeting 'Hey.' The interpretations range from 'friends' to 'I'm drunk.' The 'What Texting Heyyyyy Means' Chart is truly hilarious and accurate. Upon looking at it, I immediately thought back to the people I regularly text and how many Y's their messages are assigned.

Implications - Businesses that portray themselves as humor will benefit tremendously in today's market. Such businesses will be perceived as highly approachable, a quality to which many consumers appeal.
