A ping is a notification which gives you the name of the sender and the time it was sent. It doesn't contain a custom text message like IM services. This way communication is simple and fast.
In order for pings to be understood, you need to have an arrangement with the person you're pinging. Something like "I'll ping you when I'm there" will do the job. Otherwise, pings have no meaning.
