Poke Her? You Hardly Know Her!
- Tirelessly working to further their goal of giving every individual piece of functionality its own app, Facebook has released the Facebook Poke app today. While being described by many as an app for sexting, you may want to think twice about sending that photo that you think will only be seen once.One of the largely publicized features of the Poke app is the ability to send a photo, video or text message that is only viewable for a short period of time. Determined by the sender, the content can be visible for 1, 3, 5 or 10 seconds before itâ€™s gone forever. This timeframe starts once the receiver taps and holds on the message to view it. After the timeframe expires, the messages is gone for good. Or at least you hope.
