Thanks to the experience that has been gained over the years and the great effort that Facebook has done as a company, today it is one of the most complete social networks of all; as it allows you to chat, share images, videos, posts, sell products, watch live broadcasts, and even play video games. But many have forgotten one of the functions that for quite some time was very popular: ‘Give a touch’.

You may be too young to remember it, but Facebook had the option of ‘Give a touch’ to any of your contacts, which for some time became very common, they all tapped their friends.
Sometimes they were used to start a conversation, fill your contact with notifications or simply to attract attention. But what was really its function?
What was the use of ‘giving a touch’ on Facebook?
The purpose of the touches was for a Facebook user, who was not exactly your friend, to have access to your profile information temporarily. That is, if you tapped a stranger, they could see your posts, photos, videos, etc., but only for a certain time.
Perhaps the purpose was to meet more people, connect with more people or show others your likes and interests, so that later they become friends on Facebook.
Can you still ‘tap’ in 2021?
Yes! Although it is not so common anymore, it is still possible ‘Give a touch’ to any of your friends. And the way to do it is very simple, you just have to:
1. Open the app Facebook from your phone.
2. Tap on the magnifying glass button at the top.
3. Search the word ‘Pokes’.
4. Select the option ‘Touches’ that will appear in the section ‘Facebook shortcuts’.
5. Press the button ‘Give a touch’ to the person you want and that’s it.
With this same procedure you will be able to see which of your friends have given you a touch recently and even if they did it a few years ago. You can also return them to regain interaction with friends you haven’t talked to for a long time.
‘Tap’ from the web version of Facebook
