Starcraft, Warcraft...Socraft!

Socraft: Essential Names For Common Social Media Practices, by Adam Humphreys & Erik Stinson

My favorite of these:

Needledicking: Making direct contact with a person of higher online social standing within a given community with no fixed intentions or propositions – mainly (merely) to say what’s up or indicate approval of “what they are doing” – under the impression that said action may result in unforeseen future benefit. E.g.: “Biches are needledicking my fake Bill Gates account…”

Paddy Johnson has a commenter who is constantly stopping by to say "haven't read yet - looks interesting - keep up the good work." Now I have a name for it.

I'm guilty of dogpiling Paddy Johnson's blog but that's because I only read one blog.
