Named after the character Andrea Zuckerman in the show Beverly Hills 90210, getting Zuckered is a reference to a demotion among a group of friends to a level reflecting her low social status on the show. One who has been Zuckered is rendered to the level of friend people put up with in large social settings, but generally try to avoid bringing out to smaller more intimate gatherings.
If your friends don't invite you to the "cool" gatherings, you've been Zuckered. If you are made fun of constantly behind your back, you've been Zuckered. If people suspect you have some no-chance crush on another member of the group, you've been Zuckered.
It can also be identified by the collective low groan exhibited by the group when a Zuckered person arrives.
The irony of one who has been Zuckered, is they typically have no clue it has happened and try to act as a normal member of the group. Once one has been Zuckered, it is best to move on to friends of even lower social status, hobos, criminals, Walmart employees, to attempt to re-establish social hierarchy.
