Top definition
noun or verb

The act of self-declaration via twitter or facebook of what you are currently "doing" (BESIDES typing into facebook or twitter - which is what you are ACTUALLY DOING!) in an attempt to publicly validate your social status and to make it look like you are not a loner or a loser that needs virtual validation to give yourself a sense of self-worth. (As my friend put it, posting that you are doing laundry is not a "status update" - it's a cry for help!)

Dan is totally into cyber-affirmation. He updates his facebook status ten times a day. As if we really want to read a play-by-play of his laundry chore.
