social nerdwanking
 n.Note: The Diesel Sweeties comic in which the term was coined is here. «Coined by R. Stevens in his webcomic Diesel Sweeties, “social nerdwanking” means lording your social-network superiority over others, which is secretly the only reason you bother with Facebook, Tumblr, Twitter, Orkut, and every other social network. Except your legitimate if fruitless use of Adult FriendFinder.» —“Social nerdwanking” by Nick Douglas Valleywag Dec. 10, 2007. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
