Facebook silently retired its Poke app from the iOS app store Friday 9th May 2014, ending the run of an app that was both a Snapchat competitor and the last iteration of a joke that’s as old as Facebook itself.
Poke allowed you to send ephemeral messages, photos and videos to your friends that would last up to 10 seconds before vanishing forever. If that sounds familiar, it should — it’s an almost exact clone of Snapchat.

But Snapchat was launched at the end of 2011, and swiftly gained adhesion to the point where users now send 700 million photos and videos per day, according to the startup. Facebook Poke was launched a year later, and Facebook hasn’t ever revealed usage stats. All we know is it dropped out of the top 25 most downloaded iOS apps very shortly after its launch.
