The word “facebooker” is not a French verb, but rather a noun derived from the English word “Facebook.” It refers to someone who uses the social media platform Facebook.
In French, the verb for using Facebook is “utiliser Facebook” or “être sur Facebook.” Therefore, there is no specific translation for the verb “facebooker.”
In everyday French, the term “facebooker” is most often used in the passé composé (present perfect) tense when talking about someone’s recent activity on Facebook. This tense is used to describe an action that began and ended in the past, but has a connection to the present.
Example 1: J’ai facebooké hier soir. (I Facebooked last night.)
Example 2: Tu as beaucoup facebooké cette semaine. (You have Facebooked a lot this week.)
Example 3: Elle a beaucoup facebooké depuis qu’elle a créé son compte. (She has Facebooked a lot since she created her account.)
These sentences convey the idea that the action of using Facebook happened at a specific time in the past, but the person is still connected to the activity or has ongoing activity on the platform. The passé composé tense is often used in casual speech and everyday conversations.
In this context, the word “facebooker” can also be used as a reflexive verb, “se facebooker,” to indicate that the action was done by the person themselves.
Example: Nous nous sommes trop facebookés hier soir. (We Facebooked too much last night.)

Facebooker – About the French Passé Composé (Present Perfect) Tense
The French Passé Composé is a compound tense used to express actions or events that have been completed in the past. It is one of the most common past tenses in the French language and is typically used in everyday conversation to describe actions that occurred at a specific point in the past. The Passé Composé is constructed using an auxiliary verb (either “être” or “avoir”) and a past participle.
Formation of the Passé Composé
Set the auxiliary verb with either
“être” – used with a select group of verbs (mostly intransitive verbs of motion, reflexive verbs, and some others) or
“avoir” – used with most other verbs.
Conjugate the auxiliary verb
If using “être,” you must conjugate it in the present tense according to the subject of the sentence.
Je suis, Tu es, Il est, Nous sommes, Vous êtes, Ils sont
If using “avoir,” conjugate it according to the subject as well:
J’ai, Tu as, Elle a, Nous avons, Vous avez, Ils ont.
Add the past participle
For regular -er verbs, remove the -er ending and add -é (e.g., “parler” becomes “parlé”).
For regular -ir verbs, remove the -ir ending and add -i (e.g., “finir” becomes “fini”).
For regular -re verbs, remove the -re ending and add -u (e.g., “vendre” becomes “vendu”).
For irregular verbs, you’ll need to learn the past participles individually, as they don’t follow a regular pattern.
Common everyday usage patterns
Narrating Past Events
The Passé Composé is used to talk about specific actions or events that took place in the past. For example: “Hier, j’ai mangé une pizza” (Yesterday, I ate a pizza).
When describing a series of actions in the past, the Passé Composé is used. For example: “D’abord, je me suis réveillé, puis je suis allé travailler” (First, I woke up, then I went to work).
Describing Completed Actions
It’s used to emphasize that an action has been completed, often with a specific time reference. For example: “Elle a terminé son travail à 18 heures” (She finished her work at 6 p.m.).
Interactions with other tenses
The Passé Composé is often used in conjunction with the imperfect tense when telling a story or describing past events. The Passé Composé is used for specific actions that occurred, while the imperfect is used for background information or ongoing actions.
For example: “Il pleuvait quand j’ai sorti mon parapluie” (It was raining when I took out my umbrella).
Conditional and Future Tenses
The Passé Composé is used as a reference point in complex sentences to establish the sequence of events in relation to future or conditional actions.
For example: “Quand il est arrivé, je lui ai donné ton message” (When he arrived, I gave him your message).
The French Passé Composé is an essential tense for talking about completed actions in the past in everyday conversation. It’s important to master the choice of auxiliary verb and the past participle conjugation for various verbs to use it effectively.
