Another thing I'm wondering about....What is the purpose of "Poking" someone on FB??

I haven't ever "poked" anyone on there. Here lately this guy I went to school with keeps poking me. What in the heck does it mean? AND, why would a person "Poke" another person at 5 am?

  • Good question, I think though the part about doing this at 5 am is pure boredom or insomnia!

  • Its just for fun I guess LOL. It doesn't mean anything... My sister and I poke each other all the time. Kinda like saying hi.

  • its just a way to say "hey...im looking at your page" or something along those lines. i mostly do it to annoy DH cause there really is no point to it. it doesnt really do or mean anything.

  • Hmmmm, okay. If I want to tell someone hi, I will text them or call them and tell them hi. LOL!
