Facebook, Facebook poke, What Facebook Poke Is All About

I have been receiving pokes from friends and other people on Facebook and I will poke them back but I never knew the meaning of this, I was just following the band wagon until I decided to make a research about this poke of a thing.

During my research to know what Poke is all about, I stumbled on many posts but picked interest in the one Facebook itself explained. According to Facebook people poke their friends or friends of friends for the following reasons.

  • Just to say a quick hello
  • To remind a friend that you're waiting for his or her reply or message.
  • Getting someone attention.
  • Just for fun
  • To show affection.
  • To check if someone has visited Facebook recently.

How To Poke A Friend.

1. Visit the person's timeline.
2. Find the gear icon after the send a gift icon
3.Click it to bring out a drop down menu that includes the option to Poke.
4.Confirm the poke in the pop-up box when it appears, to send a poke.

After someone pokes you, you have the option to poke them back or remove it, If you don't want people to be poking you, you can block them.

You can see all your pokes in the pokes pages.
