Slang is indeed a timeless topic to discuss about. Slang develops along with the technology development which now enables people to share not only text like the conventional SMS system, but also pictures. Slang then comes in multimodal form, called meme, and becomes popular. Meme contains a picture and text at once, sending strong message and emotion to the readers. WhatsApp, as one of the most popular instant messaging application, becomes a medium to share memes among users. This study deals with multimodal online slangs shared via WhatsApp. The aims of this study are to find out the background of the slang creation and the meanings, and also to explore its contributions to language. The data were collected from several WhatsApp users by asking their permissions to access and copy the memes from their “WhatsApp Images” folder in their phones. Qualitative method was applied to analyze the data. The result showed that the memes were created over various but relatable issues, especially to young adults. There were some new words found in the memes and lots of puns were also used. The writer also discovered that slang contributes to language by richening the language and taking a part in maintaining languages.
