Every time you log into Facebook you may notice you were poked by a friend or family member if you look at the homepage's right sidebar. Normally, if you want to return the poke, you would have to click the "Poke" link for each person and confirm the action. By using the Firefox browser and the Facebook Auto Poke user script, you can automatically poke back your friends every time you sign into your account. This convenient tool can save you time on the social network.
