An action looked upon by the Facebook community with general, tacit, disdain. May or may not result in being de-friended.
Examples of Facebook Faux-pas include:
- Tagging yourself in a photo
- Logging on before school
- Sending lame application invites
- Making a "I lost my cellphone" group
In an online social network, such as Facebook, the commission of a mild offense or faux pas of innocently tagging a friend in a photo, image, or video in a way that they deem undesirable or inappropriate.
Adam: Dude! Why did you tag me in that video with the stripper?!?
Bob: Sorry man, my photaux pas.
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.
Messaging a friend on facebook, but someone besides the intended recipient is using the account, causing an embarrassing situation
You: Hey, Devon, remember the ass on that chick you were grinding on the dance floor last night?
Devon: This is Devon's wife. I'm so glad he told me he got stuck working late at the job last night. But since you're on, you might as well come by and pick up all his belongings off the lawn.
/smacks head, what a Face Pas
A Freudian Slip made on facebook, unlike Freudian slips this is written rather than spoken; a serious faux pas on facebook where the writer writes something other than what they ostensibly meant to say.
When his jealous wife was away my friend made an embarrassing faceFreudianbook slip when he posted on her facebook wall "Honey I wish you were her" when he ostenisbly meant to say "I wish you were here" OOOPS!
A slip or blunder in social media etiquette.
Did you really just try to friend your high school girlfriend on Facebook? That's a total smaux pas.
