Facebook Releases Poke App for Self-Destructing Messages

Facebook has released the standalone version of ‘Poke’ for iOS this week, allowing users to send messages, pictures or videos to others without the fear of having them reproduced on the Internet due to their short life span. The service has been known to foster a rise in sexting since they are most likely not to be seen by anyone other than the recipient.

The messages expire after a set period of time, from 1 to 10 seconds, and cannot be retrieved by either party again. This makes the app perfect for sending salacious images without leaving a trail.
