Facebook Bringing Back Poke Suggestions? Why?

Of all the disastrous moves Facebook could have made just hours before its initial public offering, this one takes the cake: Poke suggestions are back, at least for some users.

After introducing the annoying poke suggestion feature in November 2009, the social network appeared to smarten up when it began to de-emphasize the poke last September, doing away with poke suggestions shortly thereafter.

However, poke suggestions may be back, and the only question we have is: Why? For the love of God, why?

Readers: Do you hate pokes as much as we do?

Thanks to Ticular Principal Ulrike Ruppelt for the tip.
