Applies to the world of Facebook, where users have the ability to "poke" someone. This does nothing execpt informing the recepient of the poke has in in fact been poked. Then then poke back. And then the original poker pokes back the poke backer who then pokes back...etc etc. This is known as a poke war.
Poke wars accomplish nothing, except of course when one participant finally gives in, relinquishing their soul and any dignity that is attached to it.

Note: Poke wars can also be a semi-pathetic attempt at actually having human contact or just flirting in general without having to worry about following up in any way.
