FYI is an acronym for "For your information." So, instead of writing "For your information" you would simply write "FYI" to get your point across. (Hence, an acronym)

An e-mail may be forwarded and in the content you can write "FYI" and the reader should then scroll down to read the remainder of the e-mail.

Can be mistaken for "For your FYI" - this is misuse of acronym.
Proper use: "The can of corn is in the top shelf, FYI."

Misuse: "For Your FYI it is our boss's birthday today" - wrong.

It's quite simple actually. It was originally a shortened version for For Your Information.

However, people have made up other things that can stand for FYI. For example "Fuck You Idiot". But, that's a bit pointless if you ask me. Saying the whole thing has a grander effect.
(Quoting Shrek 2)

Prince Charming: FYI, not my fault!


-Fuck you idiot!!!
-What the hell?

Often used for "for your information", in many cases this acronym more appropriately conveys "fuck you, idiot!"
