The hesitation or outright fear of adding applications to your facebook account. Can also be extended to mobile platforms, in which apps are all the rage. Appaphobia may be a result of extreme elitism among their peers, as appaphobes do not want their peers to to see their top 10 valentines for 2010, or what their favourite colour says about them.

It is common to see appaphobes judging friends based on the apps they install, as well as almost always voicing that they are "sick of all these stupid apps."

At present a cure for appaphobia is not available, nor is one expected in the near future.
"Boy, I really would like to find out how original my name is, but it would corrupt my entire facebook reputation!"
"Sounds like you've got an acute case of appaphobia."
"What are you, a psychiatrist?"
"....appaphobe."

"Do you really need 5 fart apps on your iphone?"
"Do you really need to be such an appaphobe?"
