A geek is any person who is specially intelligent or talented in any specific area of expertise. Geeks are not to be confused with nerds who are simply dorky, uncoordinated and usually lack social skills.
Geeks often have some sort of social skills yet are dorky (though there are many geeks who are not also dorks).

A geek is not a nerd.
A geek is obsessive over anything and everything: television shows (including Star Wars, Harry Potter and Doctor Who) it can be from comics, the internet and often consoles, pc games or related topics.

The geek will know everything about the given subject but despite this will have few problems socially.

However, in brief, a nerd applies to somebody who is a computer genius or enjoys maths,science or ICT to a large extent

They arent really the most popular people in school, but really, who is? those intimadating Violent Bullies?

Geeks are just... not Bullies, chavs, gilry girls or any of the others, they are just themselves and are more likely to have a succesfull future.
