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.
After 3 solid months of poking back and forth Cate finally relented and subjected herself to the ultimate humiliation of a poke war defeat.

A "war" on face book, in which one user "pokes" the other using the popular feature. Then they engage in a "war" by poking each other back and forth. Often used a mediocre substitute for flirting, leading to nothing at all.
