Facebook releases 'Poke' app

  • Facebook released a new messaging app called “Poke.” Facebook users using Poke can now send text messages, photos, and videos. The app erases pictures and messages within 10 seconds of being sent. The earlier version of Facebook's Poke was configured to send nods, winks, and similar emoticons. The upgraded "Facebook Poke" allows sharing of videos, photos, and winks but these cannot be retrieved after 10 seconds.
