When one references a news or science article they didn't actually read, but rather saw only the title and first couple lines of the article on Facebook or a similar website.
1: "Hey, I read this really interesting article about the school to prison pipeline the other day?"
2: "Did you actually read it though, or did you just see someone post it on Facebook?"
1: "...yeah one of my friends posted it. Sorry, that's pagerism."

Similar to plagiarism, pagerism is the act of saying a quote that is a Facebook fan page to your friends, and taking credit for it as your own.
Dave: "Don't drink and drive, you might hit a bump and spill your drink."

Luke: "Dude you got that on Facebook. That's pagerism, noob."
