Facebook today announces Poke, an iPhone app that makes it fun and easy to say hello to friends wherever you are. The poke feature that has been a part of Facebook since 2004, now comes to mobile device. With the Poke app, you can poke or send a message, photo, or video to Facebook friends to share what you're up to in a lightweight way.
You can poke an individual friend or several at once. Each message expires after a specific time you've set, either 1, 3, 5 or 10 seconds. When time runs out, the message disappears from the app. To see a message from a friend, press and hold the message until it expires. If you ever see something you're uncomfortable with, you can click the gear menu and report it.
