Why do people "poke" on facebook??

It's just funny and I'm curious as to what people think...I'm sure it has no significance but if it's insignificant, why do people do it? Just for fun and games? What if a guy pokes a girl?

  • I've poked a few friends, I think all male and my only intensoin was to creep them out. I was wondering what it meant myself. I saw on one of the kin videos a guys pokes rosa and when asks what means it he say it can mean anything. he said its like a playful hi to test the waters. it would make sense because that's what a real poke means in real life

  • I always thought if you poked someone you would be considered creepy lol. I guess if you do it with your close friends it's not a big deal. But if some random guy poked you it's kinda weird.

    • Lol I always thought it was kinda weird too ha...none of my friends really do it but a guy that I was sorta talking to earlier this summer did earlier today, so I poked him back, then I got another poke soon after. I just think it's funny ha

    • Oh geez:)

  • When a guy pokes me on facebook I take it as a flirty thing. Nothing too extreme, just a flirty hello. I don't mind it haha

  • I think it' just for fun, a way to say "hey, I was thinking about you"

  • I Don't know I've heard different things about whether its flirty, or silly, or means nothing at all, annoying I guess, its just there to confuse people

  • I think it's just war. My friends and I have "poke wars"
