Ever heard of the Facebook Poke and Facebook Camera apps? No? Me either. However they are official apps from Facebook or at least they were as Facebook has decided to now retire them from the App Store. The Apps were released a couple of years ago, the Poke app allowed you to poke and message with friends.
Also fo the chop is Facebook’s standalone camera app which I am almost completely certain nobody ever knew existed nevermind actually used.
Getting rid of these features is not really a surprise as they have all been rolled into one app over the past number of years and so as standalone apps they now serve no purpose any more.
Maybe it is a case of Facebook getting rid of the old in order to make way for the new? Either way should you still have a desire to ‘poke’ your friends on Facebook (which I thought was a tradition that was long dead by now) you can still do so via the website on your computer.
