netsheeping is a shortened version of "social netsheeping
," which is a play on the term "social networking
," but refers to changing your status message, avatar or picture under the direction of other users, either as an inside joke or a pass-it-on (or follow-the-leader) game where one would encourage their friends to do the same thing.
People that participate in social netsheeping are referred to as netsheep
