    Ex. "I know all of the most popular fashion trends, slang, and most popular songs on the radio. I am really in the loop."

    Ex. A person living in America, but does not know what a computer is would be considered out of the loop.

    Out of the loop is one of these new expressions that has inveigled its way into the everyday speech of middle management. I suspect it originally comes from the military.

    The implication is that there is a group (a circle) of people who need to know and keep each other informed, so if you're not part of that circle you're out of the loop.
