No one pokes on Facebook anymore. Or maybe it’s just me 🙁

I don’t think they even have the poke option on FB anymore. I think it went during the “upgrade” which also saw the removal of the favourite quote from your profile page.

Definitely still there, just hit the message down box, it says Poke…

Well I think we’ve demonstrated a significant proportion of the population have a sexual interpretation of the poke.

But it started so many years ago on ICQ, which in turn turned into a nudge on MSN, then Facebook brought back the poke.
