    In BBM?

    It's to annoy people. It's incredibly successful.

    Maybe or maybe not. Depends on who does it and why. To "ping" is to see if a device is listening or reachable. To ping an unknown addy will result in a domain name and vise versa. When I get a message from an unknown number I return a message "ping" if its someone that knows me they know I'm asking who they are. If I start the conversation w/ ping I'm asking if they are up, busy, can you talk? So if its used that way then iys cool. If someone one uses it to bug somebody then its childish.

    I find it more similar to a "nudge" on Windows Live Messenger than poke on Facebook

    Just the my txt message alert. I haven't figured out a way to set an alert to a "message" yet.
