Facebook, on Friday, announced the launch of the Poke app for the iPhone and iPod Touch. As regular Facebook users might remember Poke is a popular feature on the site which lets people, well, 'poke' each other.
In the app, Facebook lets users send pokes, video, pictures and text messages to their friends but these last only 10 seconds.
When you get a message on Poke, you'll also hear a voice saying 'poke.' And according to this post on TechCrunch, the voice that says Poke when you get a message belongs to none other than Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg.
TechCrunch also reports that Facebook tried to buy SnapChat, the other iOS app that lets users send messages, videos, photos for under ten seconds.
By the way, the app is already at number 2 on Apple's App Store. You can check out the recording with Zuckerberg's below courtesy Josh Constine from TechCrunch who posted it on SoundCloud.
