"What's up?" is very common in the US and Canada, but it is typically more informal and used with friends. A simple "how are you?" is just as common and something you would say to strangers.

Also to correct your grammar in your original question, you say "Do they say it in the UK also?". : )

Thank you Patrick, for your kind answer and corrections. I have been to England for one year, and I never heard "What's up?" in there. But a book about English says, No one use "How are you? and I'm fine thank you." in recently, it is just using in class room in Japanese high school in Japan. The author is American, so I wanted to know that his writing is true or not in the US. Now I understand the situation using "What's up?", thank you very much indeed. Shigeko

What's up is not used much in the UK.

Do they also say it in the UK ?
