Pokes

People poke their friends or friends of friends on Facebook for a lot of reasons (ex: just saying hello, getting their attention). When you poke someone, they'll receive a notification.

To poke someone:

  1. Go to your friend's profile
  2. Click on their cover photo
  3. Select Poke

Note: If you don't want people poking you, you can block them. If you'd like to see all your pokes, visit your pokes page.

When you poke someone, they'll get a notification and will then be able to poke you back.

Keep in mind only the person you poke can see that you've poked them. If you don't want people poking you, you can block them. If you'd like to see all your pokes, visit your pokes page.

Once you remove a poke from your pokes page you can't get it back, but you're able to poke your friend again. Keep in mind you can't be poked by the same person unless you poke them back or remove their poke first.

You can see your pokes activity on your pokes page. It will begin showing you how many times you've poked back and forth with a friend after you've poked them more than once.
