On Facebook , the platform and social network, there is a function that has the purpose of informing other users about their own profile , without necessarily being among their contacts. The name of this function is ” touch “.The intention of the touch is that the other knows that we want to establish contact . It can be a user with mutual friends or even without a relationship with us. The touch is, then, like an alert or greeting for the other. It is a way to start the conversation with an acquaintance or a stranger.The touch, called ” poke ” in English, has an effect that lasts for a week, and the profile information is visible in its most basic form, without revealing the most compromising. In the eyes of many users, this is a seemingly useless feature.

What is the touch on Facebook for?

Taps on Facebook are used to:

  • Contact friends who are not in contact list
  • Contact friends of other friends
  • Start conversation with strangers

To send a touch, you have to enter the profile of the person you want to contact, and the function will be found on the right side of the box with the name Messages. Where the word “Friendship” is displayed, the option “tap” appears.

Once the touch is sent, it will be a matter of time before the other person responds , either approving or rejecting it. It depends on this that they know the information of their respective profiles.

With one touch, we can meet new people and win friends.

If the other user does not accept the touch, just go to the ” Delete ” option to ignore it. To establish the contact, the option to use is ” Accept “, and the touch is returned.

The touches on Facebook are intended to link users so that they get to know each other. They are based on the human need to socialize, and are used so often to facilitate bonding . The only requirement is that both people are registered members on the Facebook platform, with a well-defined profile.

The handling of this benefit is at the mercy of the user, and can have as many advantages as disadvantages. In children who use the social network, the risks are beyond the reach of the parents, unless they apply limitations , and are attentive to the contacts with which the minors interact.
