_TFS: Thanks for sharing! (Again!) Because we were really hoping for an hour-by-hour update of what that lab partner from high school biology is doing every weekend.

_LIKE: You want your friends to Like your posts. Facebook wants you to Like its stock. We note that FRND would also be an acceptable substitute.

_MEEE: Because if Facebook isn’t the modern world’s biggest exercise in self-glorification, then we don’t know what is.

_X: As in, “It’s really time to stop stalking your ex and concentrate on your current relationship.” But since “X” is taken by U.S. Steel Corp., we offer STLK as a placeholder.

_THE: Because remember, it was thefacebook.com before it was renamed facebook.com. That’s when it became, in the words of Justin Timberlake as Sean Parker in “The Social Network,” cleaner.

_ZUCK: For Mark Zuckerberg, the face of Facebook and the man all of Wall Street wants to friend.

_ “LOL,” for what he’s going to do all the way to the bank.

_POKE: In honor of what is perhaps Facebook’s creepiest feature.

_WOT: Waste of time. Applies to friends who constantly post about going to the gym or the grocery store. Never, ever, ever interesting.

_FBML: For “future blackmail.” As in, those keg-stand pictures are funny now, but could keep you from becoming president in 30 years.
