Slang Gang Word of the Day




Facebookemon

The term used for the collection of people, on your Facebook friends list, that you don't actually talk to or know in real life. Related to popular TV program and game Pokemon, where the aim is to collect as many different Pocket Monsters as possible.

Dave - "Hey, my friends collection is getting up to two hundred"

Steve - "How many do you really know? go admit it, most of them are Facebookemon"

John - "Gotta catch em all, gotta catch em all"

I think I'm actually even more embarrassed that I understand the comparison to Pokemon (thanks to being a mother to a 10 year old boy)...but at least I can say I have NO Facebookemon...never got into the whole facebook craze! =)

I am proud to say that I have no facebookemon. However, some of the folks are strictly internet friends that I email or chat with. But then again, my friend list is like 26 or some pathetic (in Facebook terms) small, but true to life number.
