July 6, 2009 Urban Word of the Day
To use Facebook as a platform to brag. Normally about a job, internship, trip, purchase or anything else that nobody really needs to know but you'd like to tell everyone because you're awesome.
Sample Facebook Status: Jane Stephens is headed to London with her new iPhone for her 2nd JOB INTERVIEW!!!!! :))))
"Hey, did you see Jane's newest Facebrag? Eesh."
A statement of boast, self-promotion or any other kind of self-glorification posted on the social networking site Facebook.
Often thinly disguised as a 'status update', the benchmark for a Facebrag is something that the offender would not normally say to friends, at work or otherwise in public for fear of being (correctly) branded as a complete nob.
Responding "FACEBRAG" on the offender's post in capitals can perhaps discourage others from repeating this heinous crime against humility.
GEORGE WILSON: is about to board the plane to the Maldives for three weeks of diving and surfing with his hot Page 3 girlfriend! So long suckers!
UNCLE SILAS: FACEBRAG! Hope your plane crashes you miserable cretin.
JEZ HAMILTON: just won the lottery and is about to de-friend everyone poorer than him LOL!
UNCLE SILAS: You dirty little FACEBRAG. I'm going to find you and inject you with Aids.
To totally use facebook to show off to a really embarrasing extent...
On Facebook chat:
Cool Guy: Wagwan?
Facebragger: Not much, just doing exams...only need a D...whatever? Even though I'm showing off you are totally cool!
Cool Guy: Whatever signs out to look cool
