Used to describe a state
of pseudo rejection on Facebook, whereby someone has placed
you on a 'restricted' list such
that you remain a 'friend' officially, but can only see postings
that they make public to the billion plus other a-holes with a Facebook account. Named after the plebeian class in ancient
Rome who were deemed unworthy to mix with the nobility.
"I thought you guys were friends."
"On Facebook? Officially we are, but in name
only. Really, he's part of the general pleblic."
