About the App

Give your users a fun, simple and quick way of initiating conversations.

The Pokes Plugin enables a user to grab the attention of another user. Different users might use and interpret pokes in different ways. While some might use it as just another way to say hello, others might use it to grab attention and initiate conversation with someone that they feel shy to talk to. Yet others might use it to flirt with someone they like! This is very similar to the popular "Poke" feature in Facebook.

Plugin Features

  • Users can Poke other members from their profile pages.
  • Members can view the Pokes that they have received from their home pages, in the Pokes widget.
  • Members can Poke Back for the Pokes that they have received.
  • Members can hide the pokes that they have received.
  • Integration with Activity Feeds and Notification Updates.
  • Admin configurable email notifications, for notifications when a user is poked.
  • Member Level Settings for Pokes. Admin can also choose who the users of a member level can poke (all registered users, friends, friends of friends, etc.).
  • Mobile Compatibility: This plugin is compatible with our "Mobile / Tablet Plugin".


  • Member Level Settings.
  • Settings for Activity Feed, Email Notifications and Notification Updates for Pokes.

A Fun Engagement Tool

Giving members a way to keep engaged is always the goal. This is another great (and high quality) plugin from the SEAO team – and it's free! You can't go wrong with grabbing this!

Excellent User Engagement. . .
Recommended by J-Sky Beal on July 16th, 2018 at 8:21pm

Social Engine Addons, Poke Plugin, is another great plugin that promotes user engagement. Members can quickly poke friends from their profile page to initiate conversations. An email is sent to the member to respond to the poke. We Really appreciate the vast collection of plugins that SEAO develops to fully engage our user base and highly recommend their plugin products.

Recommended by Roland Roesbeke on July 15th, 2018 at 6:51pm

Excellent product and products, besides, most important is the superb and fast support. Our company in the US is working with socialengineaddons.com for two years. The business relationship we have built over this period has been outstanding to say the least.

I highly recommend socialengineaddons.com and their excellent team to take care of your software needs and beyond; check-out their website and you will appreciate the peace of mind that you are covered from A to Z.

Don't hesitate because they might be overseas, rest assured their ethics are second to none, politeness and great mentality goes hand in hand with excellent communication, which is key to success, having in the end a great finished product. Congratulation team, keep-up the great work.

Recommended by Peter Gruessing on July 9th, 2018 at 2:45pm

I have to say, we have downloaded and tried a lot of plugins but Social Engine add-ons are clearly in the lead. We installed the poke plugin without any errors or issues and it worked perfectly the first time! I would absolutely recommend this plugin to anyone running a social engine site! You just can't get any better the SEAO! I wholeheartedly recommend them or any of their plugins/widgets without any hesitation!

Let's poke ...
Recommended by Daniel Scholz on May 18th, 2014 at 1:18pm

Free but very useful particular useful for shy people not daring more than poke somebody ....

Recommended by Brandon Chaffinch on April 19th, 2014 at 1:13am

Another cool feature.. and a must have.. Like most social sites there is a poke a nudge a wink etc that you use while engaging.. but one of my favorite parts of this plug in is that if you as a user do not wish to get poked.. you can turn it off. ( unlike the big sites out there where you do not have this option) I love it

Very Cool Plugin !
