Why Are You Poking Me?


Only five days ago I caved and succumbed to the pressures of Facebook.  I didn't dive in, I didn't use my full name nor did I post my alma maters.  I'm even using a fake picture.

After five days I can see why people get addicted to this tool.  It's pretty awesome.  I just have one question.  What's the deal with the poke?

People have been poking me.  I'm never quite sure what to do.  Sometimes I ignore it, other times I poke back.  I'm unsure what the poking etiquette dictates and I don't understand the purpose.

There is much for me to learn.  People even tagged me in photos of pizza and The Simpsons and got offended when I removed the tag.  It's a whole self sustained eco-system and I'm suffering from culture shock.
