used to describe something that actually happens or exists. One of the most overused words in modern society. Not to be confused with figuratively, as this is the complete opposite.
Incorrect usage:

A: It was literally raining cats and dogs.

B: Really dipshit? How many scratches do you have?

Correct usage:
A: Dude, Justin Bieber literally has half a billion views on YouTube.
B: Shit, really? Now I know the world is coming to an end
