I guess I have magic powers for being able to see the benefits in it!
Same here -- although, I'd argue that people, groups, and businesses have already settled themselves so deep into the Facebook platform (with respect to social networking) that unless something really game changing surfaced, it would be pretty difficult for people to jump ship.

Don't get the point of having so many apps.

Guess I'm the only here that likes this (like I was the only one that didn't like the iOS switching idea earlier) mainly cos I've got lots of dirty female friends who have already made use of being able to send filth that is gone after a few seconds…personally I don't mind receiving that a few times a day

Then you can't think very hard. I use Snapchat all the time and have never "sexted" - but I've sent messy hair, silly faces, etc that I'd die of humiliation if they were passed around. Same thing my friends all use it for. None of us "sext"

I did a search in the App Store for "Facebook Poke" the app did not show up in the results I looked at. Did another search just for "Facebook" and still did not find it. I clicked on the "Direct Link" ( in the article and it brought up the app like it should.

Curious that the happen isn't easily found in search.

I'm running iOS 6.0.1 on iPhone 5.
