Massively Multiplayer Online

Multiplayer to signify you play with other player
Online means on the internet, not LAN
Massively to indicate you are not limited to a party/raid size operation, server can accept thousands of player

A multiplayer online game (MOG) would be call of duty for exemple

A major difference between MMO and MOG is that the world is permanent in MMO, it continue to exist even when you log out. Map in call of duty disappear once the match is over, and everybody is send back to the menu screen.
