2.
Literally, to poke someone. Typically this is done over an IM client.

Part of the old school emote family (yeah, before lolcats).
Like anything enclosed in asterisks, *poke* is performing the action of poking the person you send it to.

Largely replaced, in modern context, with "/e", "/me" or "/em" (emote) preceding the action.
Dude: Hey!
Bro: Hey Dude, what's up?
<Long period of silence>
Bro: *Poke* Oi! Wake up!
Dude: ouch! Sorry was doing other stuff!

3.
Typically, usually a middle aged "pedophile", in the works of only talking to 10 to 16 year old's by networking, "Internet" slang.

As he will, "*Poke*" he strokes, until the other person figures they themselves are oblivious that there is in fact, a pedophile cybering, with he/she.
