look up any word, like plopping:
 
1.
The act of posting a status on Facebook about yourself to elicit sympathy or praise from other people.(also see: facebragging).

Contraction of the words Facebook and fishing because it's effectively throwing a line out on Facebook and hoping someone will bite.
Jamie: Bob's Facebook status said he got fired today and the tests came back and he does have herpes.

Bryan: He's probably just Faceshing, don't comment.
