I've read that it's similar to the second hander which exists in the Lexicon. However, there must be a reason why this term was coined in Objectivist literature.

Metaphysics concerns the nature of reality.

A social metaphysician is someone who thinks that reality is what society says it is.

So, according to social metaphysics, or social subjectivism, if everybody believes X is true, then X is true.
