I use the term FYSA a lot. Probably too much. And I often use it improperly, when maybe FYI would be better suited. But it made a great alliterative term for my “FYSA File” articles.
FYSA means For Your Situational Awareness. It’s an acronym (obviously) predominantly a military and law enforcement term. It’s typically used to set up the delivery of potentially useful, though not necessarily vital or actionable, information.
FYSA can also be viewed as “keeping someone in the loop”; it is similar to FYI (which stands for For Your Information), but may be interpreted more as meaning the information could eventually impact a person’s actions.
Some FYSA Files I’ve Written
There are some great social media accounts out there. Not the vapid, banal, or stupid-left/right-dogma types. I mean some really damn good ones you can learn from. Or that can lift your spirits. Or keep you informed about geopolitical events.The following are examples of those. The original content and credit entirely belong to the people who made those respective posts.
