Sure innuendo is common with "the poke", and people may use it for other than what it is intended, but nothing is that clear cut...at least not on Facebook. Some believe that there is a sexual connotation involved with its use, but since it is just a simple word with admittedly much hyperbole I still cannot understand how some make it more than what it actually is... "to poke". Before Facebook it meant to: poke 1  (pōk)v.poked, pok·ing, pokes
v.tr.
1. To push or jab at, as with a finger or an arm; prod.
2. To make (a hole or pathway, for example) by or as if by prodding, elbowing, or jabbing: I poked my way to the front of the crowd.
3. To push; thrust: A seal poked its head out of the water.
4. To stir (a fire) by prodding the wood or coal with a poker or stick.
5. Slang To strike; punch.
