Come on all these people complaining about not being able to play on social media for six hours. What about poor Zuckerberg? He lost 7 billion USD on his shares. You have to feel sorry for him. He probably had to go without his dinner.

A friend suggested Signal as an alternative to WhatsApp - no Google link - anyone know about it?

Signal works fine, but everybody you need to communicate wit uses WhatsApp.

Apparently this one is gaining popularity, even more so since yesterday.

We had a very sensible young (15) lady for lunch this week. She eschews most forms of social media, but says all the Spanish girls she knows were distraught at the loss of Farcebook for a few hours, and were calling friends for advice on how to communicate their Likes and Dislikes and Posts. Our friend, who is resident English, says she has nothing in common with the small-town locals of her age who are obsessed with social media.

I downloaded Telegram and found only two contacts on it, a friend of my daughter's and my audiologist. As with back up email addresses, you either forget about them or get lost cross posting.
