Discussion

People use the phrase what’s up everywhere. We use it to say hello and to ask how things are going with a specific topic.
To ask what’s up with is like asking ‘what’s going on with’ that thing.
Used alone as a greeting, what’s up means ‘what’s going on in your life?’ You can answer it if you want. Otherwise, you can just say what’s up back.
you later[/def]!
