How to poke someone on Facebook

Poke is same as giving 'likes' on Facebook, which has a much more ambiguous purpose. The Urban Dictionary says that poke allows users to show interest in a friend or to say 'hello' without going through the tedious process of crafting coherent sentences. We can poke only our friends or friends of friends on Facebook. When we poke someone on Facebook, they will get the notification and ask to "sent back poke".
