Why do we Facebook Poke? Is it so we can have the attention from our pokee or is it a subtle way of reconnecting to an old friend we didn’t know we lost?
Whatever the reason is, Facebook Poke is making a comeback.
As we’re increasing in social contacts, it’s getting harder and harder to keep up with old friends or acquaintances, especially with new social media websites popping up. Poking somebody you haven’t spoken to in a while could ignite both contacts to interact virtually. See below:
Facebook poking is not only handy with friends. If you poke somebody who isn’t your friend, and they poke you back, you can briefly see their profile. So what’s stopping this from being the new networking tool without words? We already know employers Google you when you apply for a job, Facebook poking could be the not so subtle way of notifying you that they’re looking into you. Both a blessing, if you get a call, or a curse, if you didn’t make the social cut.
Let’s not forget to mention, the more you poke, the more impressive it is for the Internet, and you may wind up on this kind of website: http://bit.ly/1LRuPOq
Previously, we found the poke to be a useless added gimmick on a somewhat straight to the point social networking site. Now, we see it as a virtual nudge in the right direction, both career-wise and friend-wise.
Is it time to dust off your virtual finger and allow the Facebook Poke to make a comeback?
