Great question! I have been poked twice in as many days and I have no idea how to respond. I don't know whether to be annoyed or pleased, especially since one of the 'pokers' is someone I barely know.

I think it can mean two things:
"Hey! Are you still around?"
"I really like you, :) "
I feel from some it is a way to say HI, but for the most part I find it annoying and just ignore the button that keeps asking me to poke back.
I must honestly say that I've always ignored this "poking" thing.It doesn't disturb me but I don't respond to it.
