Saw this FB post about this unfortunate taxi accident in HK:
However I have never heard the term GG before and was wondering if its supposed to be shorthand for something else?

well, it means “game over” 😸
have fun :)
Note: GG = "完蛋了" or "Good Game"
不過「GG」一詞當初其實是解作「Good Game」，起源於電競比賽，對戰後一方明顯勝出時，敗方就會打出「GG」，稱讚對方「Good Game」，有風度地表示認輸。不過大眾卻誤會了是解作「Game Over」，漸漸約定俗成解作「完蛋了」，甚至台灣媒體亦廣為採用「GG」一詞。
After a close match, the players might say "good game" to each other
It can also be used as a mocky, for example, I beat you 6-0 6-0 in tennis, but you still played a good game
Typing "gg" instead of "good game" started in internet gaming and is now a general internet lingo for either "good game" or "game over" (you only say good game when the game is over)
In the context of the picture you posted, gg means "game over (finished)"
I play online GO, I would type "gg" if the game was very close
留名 or LM literally means “leaving a name”, which has an extended meaning of subscribing to something (think leaving your email address to subscribe to a newsletter). In this case, it means the user subscribe to this post, and would like to follow the incident. Facebook (and many social platforms) used to notify a commenter when new comments are posted by other user, but now it’s just become a way to say “I would like to see what happens next”.
