When person B refuses person A's friend request despite A and B knowing each other well and seeing each other all the time, B has a Facebook beef with A.
If they BLOCK you after you friend them, that would mean they have a definite, very strong Facebook beef with you -- and thus a beef in real life too, that they aren't telling you about.
There are three grades of Facebook beefs:
Code Yellow: They hit reject, but not twice, so you see the "Friend Request Sent" button grayed out when you visit their profile.
Code Orange: The "Add As Friend" button re-appears, meaning they definitely don't want to be your friend.
Code Red: They actually Block you and their profile disappears into the cyber-void. Only for very grave offenses, at least in the Blocker's mind, and which the recipient of the Block may not even be aware of.
CAVEAT: This definition is primarily meant for platonic same-sex relationships (guy-guy or girl-girl, assuming all parties are straight). Guy-girl interactions are more complicated. Also, it doesn't count as a beef if the other person is a mere acquaintance and not in your peer group; you might simply not satisfy their criteria in accepting you as a friend. That said, if you have over 50 mutual friends and/or share the same peer group, and do know them personally, and they still reject you, it's probably a beef.
Person A: I can't understand why B keeps rejecting/not answering my friend requests?
Person C: Looks like B has a Facebook beef with you.
Person D: What? E actually blocked me! I can't find his profile anymore!
Person F: That sounds like a REAL Facebook beef.

When a guy goes to kiss a girl on her lips, and she turns her head, and he kisses her cheek instead. A clue at the most basic, primal level that the girl is not really into the guy, but which many if not most guys miss.
Stan chuckled to himself when he saw Brianna give her boyfriend the cheek. "I have a chance!" he thought to himself.
Erin had been inviting Jason over to her apartment for study sessions. Jason was smart enough to figure he would be getting nowhere after he got the cheek one day.
A new, rather derisive, code word for snow
, or sometimes cold weather in general, which has become a lot more common this past winter, especially among global warming skeptics.
Excuse me while I go and shovel the three more inches of global warming off the sidewalk.
(Said during blizzard or heavy snowfall, preferably in March or April) Hey, how about that global warming, eh?!
