When someone posts an update on Facebook which is designed to show how miserable their life is. Some that go up are just plain attention seeking over a very minor event but some of course would appreciate a call as they maybe dont have someone IRL they can speak to.
Not to be confused with "cryptic" updates which don't get a response when asked "whats up" because they're just plain annoying and everybody hates them.
"Why does everyone hate me, this is so tough"
"Not ANOTHER downdate from you!? This has been going on for months and its not good for you! We need to do something about this, I'll call you"
