@hbking there was a time eons ago, phones didnt have touchscreens. And can you imagine no apps or camera either!

(there is even a rumour that once upon a time phones were stuck to the wall... now that makes absolutely no sense! I am pretty sure that was made up. You would have to go home and stare at the wall to talk to your friends, haha)

I barely remember when phones had no dials or buttons. We picked up the receiver and waited for the operator to ask, "Number please?" Then we got a phone with a dial and we could dial the number ourselves - that is, we could when we found the line open which wasn't often because we were on a party line with seven other families and had to share. I still remember our ring was two longs and a short. We heard everyone's ring but only picked up when it was ours. The phone rang all hours. We had a card next to the phone which gave everyone else's ring and if we wanted to phone someone on our line we had to dial their party line number (it would be a single number, 1-8) then we'd hang up and their ring would sound repeatedly. When it stopped we knew they had answered and we picked up the receiver and said hello. If it just kept ringing then they weren't home. We didn't get a private line until the 1970s when I was married with children, but by then we only shared with three families.

The trouble with the party line was that anyone who shared the line could pick up their phone and listen in. We could hear when someone picked up and usually knew who the nosy people were on the line. Occasionally someone would break in and ask to have the line if it was an emergency or something important. (Calls were supposed to be limited to three minutes but that rule was seldom followed.) While on the nostalgia train, I also remember that the early phones were always black. When colors became available in the 1970s my mom was really excited to have an avocado green phone. (My grandkids love playing with it.) Also, the phone numbers had words in front of them. Some in my area were Locust 8, Madison 4, Edgewater 5, Granite 1, Avenue 3, etc. The first two letters of the word were dialed as part of the number and later became the present prefixes. For example, Locust 8 became the prefix 568. There were no area codes then, only the 3-number prefixes and 4-digit numbers.

I wonder how long this new update will last before applications such as Tiktok, Snapchat or Zoom fall out of fashion. Facebook's set to hold out a while later with Instagram and Whatsapp under its wing, I'd imagine, but the market is always changing.

Where did we ever say that Facebook-related apps are fine? But seriously, if you value your data, don't install any Chinese apps on your phone (or anything from Facebook either for that matter).

Right on the money. It looks less like paranoia and just like xenophobia and sinophobia.

I do sincerely appreciate that you aren't interested in selling a paid app or freemium app. There is a sense of community here and I think there is value in that. With that said, if you ever make an app, I would consider downloading it and trying it out. The map/flag type quizzes would be hard on a small screen, and then the keyboard would take up a lot of screen space too. I currently only use the website on my computers.

How about considering Hay Day as a possible answer for "Build a fake farm with real money" too? Isn't Hay Day more popular than Farmville? I mean it has twice as many downloads on Android as Farmville at least.

The stingers, zingers, joking etc. should be equally towards all or otherwise it's just targeted hate speech. As a product of one of the most free countries in nearly every way, I'd prefer the first option. Just my two rappen. Go freedom!

I really thought the quarantine chat thing would have been wechat. Didn't even know the one mentioned here existed, and right after finishing the quiz I realized CNN is advertising it. Or is it 'product placement' officially?
Also, where's telegram, signal and other (rumored to be) safer options?
