A trend that is inherently nerdy. A nerd-trend occurs when a lead nerd decides on a new nerd activity to partake in such as online chess or scrabble. Once the activity is celebrated by the lead nerd and fellow lead nerds, sheep nerds with invariably begin to participate, leading to a nerd-rush of activity, and an eventual nerd-movement toward the next activity the lead nerd decides upon.
nerd-trends have become even more mainstream as a result of the internet and online games. Facebook applications are also at fault for many nerd-trends that have resulted in the last 5 or so years.
