Facebook Poke: Now An App

Someone has poked you. Get excited when one of your friends gets playful enough to poke you on Facebook? Well to take the feeling one notch higher Facebook has just released the popular Poke feature on its platform as an app. However its not sure whether Facebook has done this to set the experience of social networking one notch higher or has it developed this application to set up a one-on-one with snapchat.

The distinctive features of the Poke application are uncannily similar to those of SnapchatIt provides a platform to send messages to one’s friends network provided the messages are communicated within a span of seconds. The messaging platform is programmed to self destruct the messages within a time span of 10 seconds. Now if we draw up a comparison Snapchat too provides the same option, the only difference being that it offers a photo snap messaging platform, which has recently graduated to video messaging as well.

However the underline to the application is that it is only available for the iPhone now and is currently live at the iTunes.
