A human being with the uncanny ability to create personal identity with the hottest news topic of the day within 2 relationships in order to gain perceived social value in the context of a Facebook debate, social discussion, or blog in order to hi jack the thread.
EXAMPLE 1: You know this pacifist in my class that disagrees with Iraq says his uncle that he never knew as a Navy SEAL and was killed in Vietnam. I checked out his story and it wasn't true. What a philanthrophony.

EXAMPLE 2: (Man1) HEY MAN, ALL THESE GUN CONTROL LAWS SEEM LIKE AN ATTEMPT TO DISARM AMERICANS. (Phony) WATCH WHAT YOU SAY, MY NIECE WAS SHOT IN SANDY HOOK! (Man1) I'M SORRY FOR YOUR LOSS. LOONIES WITH GUNS ARE THE ISSUE. I'M HAPPY I BOUGHT MY GLOCK AND KNOW HOW TO USE IT. SAY HOW COME YOUR FACEBOOK DOESN'T HAVE ANY PHOTOS OF YOUR NIECE ON IT? (Phony) WELL, I NEVER REALLY KNEW HER THAT WELL, AND DON'T TALK TO THAT SIDE OF THE FAMILY. (Man1) GEEZ YOU SEEM TO BE A BIT OF A PHILANTHROPHONY.
