Facebook Poke vs. Snapchat

Many of you are probably aware of or are currently use the Snapchat, the iPhone and Android application. Poke, is the new Facebook application that CEO and Founder of Facebook, Mark Zuckerbeg has created. The application allows a user to send photos, videos and pokes for a limited and preset amount of time. Reviews are currently mixed for the product, including my own opinion, but because of user's familiarity with Facebook, the application was still able to climb its way to the top of the Apple Store downloads. However, as the popularity of SnapChat grows, there has become a decreasing interest in Poke. Below is a chart that compares the abilities of the two applications.

I personally prefer Snapchat to Facebook's Poke, how about you? Do you feel like Facebook will be able to continue to remain relevant and competitive?
