i've always interpreted it an ambiguous, nonverbal approval/agreement. perhaps occasionally sarcastically, but what isn't?

edit: nonverbal is the wrong word to use here and i can't think of the right one

I say "animal noises" and it doesn't seem too offensive to my digital native.

It might be analagous to "w00t!!!" which I had to ask about.

The digital native is son not grandson, but it's still a 40+ year age difference so sometimes we just have to give up and say, "Well, you kind of had to be there and you weren't." and chalk it up to irreconcilable chronological cultural differences.
