I have seen it written in emails as well as sent through text messages.
But what if it came from someone else?
That is exactly what some are trying to do.
So far, this has only been done by one person, but there are many other ways people are using the word in their emails, tweets and posts.
We spoke to a few people who are trying different ways to use this word in emails and social media.
Here is a summary of the main ways people use the word.

“I will often see people trying to use it as a synonym for ‘f*ck’, but it’s a much more technical term,” he says.
The word is often used to refer to the language used to describe a particular person, often as a reference to someone’s behaviour.
Sharma adds that it can be used in a similar way to ‘fucking’ in a sentence or a ‘cunt’.
“It’s like a verb, it means ‘to talk about’,” he says, explaining how people can use it to describe their behaviour.
The term f-word has also been used to mean a derogatory term for women.
Sharma explains that this is not necessarily wrong, and it can help clarify an issue.
“It’s used to say, ‘I’m not a woman, but this is my f*cking way’,” he adds.

How to avoid being the next Fergie:The word itself is a word that is used by people who find it offensive.
But Sharma believes that many people would rather use the term in a respectful way and avoid being associated with the word itself.
“We all want to look good, we all want our social media profiles to look like our own,” he explains.
“We all like to use positive language, and if we don’t, then we will lose that positive energy.”
If you are an active campaigner for equality and women’s rights, use the F-word when you say somethingThe word can also be used to dismiss a person’s views.
“The word ‘faggot’ is a really bad word for someone who is openly gay,” Sharma says.
“If you say that it’s offensive to a gay person, they’re going to feel really disappointed, because they don’t know what it means.”
However, there are some cases when the word can be beneficial.
For example, it can indicate an agreement to do something or to do it quickly.
“It can indicate to people that you’re going through something or are on a mission, or you’re doing something very important,” he adds, explaining that this can help to prevent people from thinking that they are going through a hard time.
