Send Auto Delete Messages, Video and Photos From iPhone To Facebook With Facebook Poke

Facebook has released new application and this is like a small game of self-destructive messages which can be exchanged among the users. First thing to know is that, this application can poke your friend with few text messages, images and videos but they will not be sent to their Facebook account, rather it will be exchanged with only those users who have this same application on their mobile phone.

Users have been using this feature on their Facebook account but this application takes this on a bigger platform by attaching the attachments with it. Your text messages, images and videos sent in pokes to other users will be self-destructive which will be visible to them for minimum 1 second and maximum for 10 seconds (you will be deciding this time period). This application is very simple to use and in this port we will describe the way to use it.

First of all decide the way you are going to poke a user by one of the 4 options mentioned below or you can poke already poked user by tapping the ‘arrow’ sign.

If you are poking the user with a message or any other attachment then you can select the time of that message to get auto-destructed.

Then select the user to be poked, as mentioned earlier you cannot do anything to a user who is not using this application on his/her phone. So the user must the selected from the section mentioned below.

The user will receive the poke and once he/she taps it, the timer for the destruction of the attachment will start. If the user wishes to view the attachment during that time period, then he/she will have to tap and hold the poke as once they life their finger up, the attachment will not be visible but the timer will not stop unless it gets complete and the attachment gets deleted.

The only record saved on your application will be the exact time on which you were poked by the other user and when you poked a user.


It is a nice small game to exchange any sort of media without getting worried of it being misused, but it could have been better if this application was interfaced with the web version of Facebook, as of now when this application is not much famous among the iPhone users, you will not be able to take advantage of it.
