Facebook Poke is a communication application for iOS that allows users to send private, self-destructing messages.

Fresh on the heels of the popular app, Snapchat, Facebook released Facebook Poke for iOS. The apps share many of the same features, namely the ability to send your friends private messages that will disappear from their (and your) phone after it has been read.

Facebook Poke users can set a predefined time of 1, 3, 5, or 10 seconds for a message to self-destruct. There is also a built in feature that can detect when a screenshot has been taken on the phone, alerting the sender that their message may have been compromised. While this is great, it'd be better if Facebook Poke locked out screenshot functionality while the application is active.

Overall, Facebook Poke provides an easy to use application to share sensitive message but users should be wary of its privacy limitations.
