    Here's how i would make Facebook's Poke Icon... :D

    Idea was born while i was working on one of my previous projects:
    http://dribbble.com/shots/443218-poke you can see the initial sketch of it attached to that shot.

    Here's a quick snap for guidance and inspiration i used... hehe http://d.pr/EBLK

    Since so many people wonder about this, I'll move this info to here:

    @Nick Slogget hehe, perhaps it's hard to tell because it's just a rough idea, I am just not sure if I want to invest any more time in it :D we'll see on the responses we get here.

    Nice sketch, but how does this geometry help you or work when it's at sub-20px sizes? Not a skeptic for the hell of it, but as it's one of the primary design constraints, I'd love to see how it works there.

    @Justin Roberts haha thanks buddy and u're welcome you can get it for under $20 on jetpens.

    @Juan Gomez @Alex Cican @Eric Millington thank you guys!

    @Gijs Rogé it's a sketch / game ;P thanks mate. :)

    @Sebastiaan de With thank you, geometry here is to show that it will still make sense when it's enlarged. You can see larger version of original FB poke icon if you google it http://goo.gl/RQnZL . But yeah it wouldn't be so important if it only had to be 20px.
