Short for Google Is Your Friend, GIYF is a term sometimes used in chat and forums. It lets others know the answer to a question could be been found by performing a Google search. Users who refer to this term often use the lmgtfy (let me Google that for you) service to open a search and show how something could be searched. Below is an example of such a link that shows how to search for computer help.
