    Don't you mean "poke" in Facebook? I never saw the point of it. I just see it as glorified smilies, as with virtual beer and hugs. If you want that sort of stuff and for it to be personal, then just do it in instant messeging.

    Poking is generally seen as a litle flirting tool - you poke somebody, means you probably 'would'. But not always. Sometimes its just seen as a way to get somebodys attention for example a friend you havent seen in a while.
    There hasnt been any proper definition but this is my understanding of the function.
