Did he say “Poken” ? from Poken CEO Stéphane Doutriaux

It was with great astonishment that I learned from Mark Zuckerberg, founder of Facebook, that he “invented Poken”.  The astonishment quickly turned to pride, as I realized I had created something that such a prominent individual as Mr. Zuckerberg would want to claim as their own!

Well of course, I should set the record straight, it was in fact our team, at Poken, that invented, created, and produced this wonderful product and platform. However, I am delighted that we have won yet another ambassador.  That he chose one of the most viewed shows on US television to make his “coming out” about his desire to be part of the Poken family warms our heart even more.
So, please join me in welcoming our newest Pokenaut, Mark Zuckerberg !  Go Poken! :-)

PS: Someone suggested to me that he may have actually said “poking”. What did you hear ?

    Maybe it was tongue in cheek and he really meant “hokum”, but of course he didn’t invent that either.

    He said Poking – that is a different thing – poking is what you do on Facebook, when you make contact, but have nothing to say :-)
