Foaf



noun

: These colorful experiences always seem to happen to a FOAF (friend of a friend), hardly ever a person with a name, address, and telephone number (1990s+)

[Usenet] Friend Of A Friend. The source of an unverified, possibly untrue story. This term was not originated by hackers (it is used in Jan Brunvand’s books on urban folklore), but is much better recognised on Usenet and elsewhere than in mainstream English.
[Jargon File]
