When was the last time you were Facebook poked?

newsweek:

We’re talking “old poke,” not “new poke.” 

In 2007, Newsweek Described The Protocol:

"The poke:

With strangers, poking is the digital equivalent of eyeing someone across the room without working up the courage to say "hello." With friends, it’s a quick way to remind them you exist."
