Face⋅book pur⋅ga⋅to⋅ry
(pûr’gə-tôr’ē, -tōr’ē)
noun

  1. A prolonged state of being unconfirmed as a Facebook friend but not officially ignored, either. Often happens to those who repeatedly seek friendships from people who don’t know them or find them utterly unbearable.

This term was mentioned in passing by Peter Shankman at an event in Raleigh on November 12, 2008. The definition above is my interpretation. He says he often has lots of people sitting in Facebook purgatory.
Have you been there or are you holding others there? Better yet, do you have any other terms for this location?
Come on…have some fun!
