facebooking(2)

compounding compound of the root words “face” and “book” with the suffix “-ing.”
The act of being on the social network Facebook for extended periods of time
 
his is an interesting word because the meaning of the root words actually have nothing to do with the definition of the compound. They are completely unrelated. It is also a word that transcends all ages. This word is not exclusively used by any one group. Everybody uses the network, and so everyone has said that they were “facebooking” at one point or another.
Etymology : Compound of root words “face” and “book” with attached suffix, “-ing.”
