Here is some discussion & elaboration on the word after I shared on Facebook that might help others:

Mack  我还不懂diao丝的意思。这个没有什么特别好的说明啊

Justin  啊哟~ 你是乔栩亚的朋友呀? 屌丝就是,矮穷搓..(搓cuo第二声: 指人长的丑,行为思想不高雅端庄,或者说比较二)

Justin 这个词多用于玩笑或者自嘲

Study More Chinese If someone can piece it apart & explain in English also, that would be greatly appreciated.

Justin  well, i actually thought it's a better idea to explain Chinese words in Chinese as they can get a bit of the background and context through it. This word is generally used to describe or mock oneself. for example '本屌丝今天心情不错' or when you see someone's showing off on facebook you can comment that '屌丝给高帅富跪了' which is total sarcasm. it can also be used when you find someone's stupid or retarded like '别理他,他就是一屌丝'. basically those above are the ways how we use the word. hope it could help a little
