If you are sitting on a bus, standing in a line, or even eating on your lunch break, and someone pokes your shoulder, it almost pisses you off… right?
So, then, why is it okay to Poke someone on Facebook?
Don’t Poke Me!
“I don’t poke, and I don’t like being poked. It’s cyber weird.” -D.U.
The Poke option is so strange…
Just send me a message on Messenger, or write something on my Wall!
It is a continuous process too…
You Poke me, I Poke you? So what happens next? When does it end?
It’s really cyber weird to Poke someone back…!
There are people that have been poking me on Facebook since 2009…
I am not gonna Poke you back!
I know that all you are trying to do is reach out to me, right?
At least I hope that is what you are doing… Or, is it something more than that?
I don’t want to say it, but that is where my mind goes!
I am sure this is not what the Poke button is for, but it seems to be the reason for its usage.
Maybe I have a bias, but to me, saying the word Poke, makes my skin crawl… especially if some creepy guy or your ex-boyfriend Pokes you….
(I wish you could see my face right now as I type this)
This Poke button is like cyber sexual harassment!
I feel inappropriately touched!
