Where's the Poke Button on Linkedin? by Rose A. Valenta

Dear Stupid Ass Questions: I just joined another social network on the internet, Linkedin, but I can’t seem to find the poke thing on here. Do you know how to poke someone on Linkedin?

ROSE: Yes, you steal a Forbes Billionaire’s resume and beef up your own listing with it. That should poke everybody. You will be the most popular poke on Linkedin. You might even get a better paying job. It’s like when you go to a job interview and they ask you how much you are making now, so they can offer you the standard 10% more.

I'm still trying to figure out the poke thing on Facebook.

So am I. I don't know what "poked" means in computer speak. Now if we're talking about "getting it on..."
10% more??

Theoretically, if you make $16 an hour and you go to a job interview and tell them you are making $20, they will offer you $2 more. In reality, $22 is much better than $17.60.
