Facebook Savvy

I must admit, I'm a Facebook fan.  I'm a fan without being an addict (yes, it's possible) and I wouldn't even call myself an avid Facebooker.  I can go several days without even logging in (urban legend has it that there are some poor souls incapable of  doing this).  I don't do most of the applications available on FB (Farmville) and I don't believe I'm a fan of anything not directly related to a friend (i.e., although I do enjoy hugging, I'm not a fan of it on FB.  This includes breathing and not-getting-murdered-with-an-axe).

Facebook is fun and I do owe it many thanks for making it easier for me to keep in touch with friends far away and in worlds very different from my own (no alien jokes here, please.  It'd be too on the nose).

During a random visit to urbandictionary.com today, I was amused to see that they included a definition for something I'd just recently been discussing with my sis-in-law Anne (See Anne?  It IS a real thing!)  And I felt I absolutely must share it with you, my fellow and future fellow Facebookers:
Vaguebooking
An intentionally vague Facebook status update, that prompts friends to ask what's going on, or is possibly a cry for help.
Mary is: "wondering if it is all worth it"
Mark is: "thinking that was a bad idea"

Example:
"Have you talked to Mark? He's vaguebooking again. I wonder if he's back with Mary..."

Opposite:
Tammy is: "in line at the grocery store"

If you're not already a Facebooker, I suggest you join.  Remember, you CAN always stop whenever you want.

I did not know there was a name for it, but I HATE vaguebooking.

That's funny! I was JUST on that site today for the first time and read that too.
Do you know that you can look up your name on there too?

Thanks for The Princess Bride quote. Those things go a long way.
