📌 Friended Is New Social Network-
Far from Facebook, this platform moves your initial “is anyone out there like me” feeler directly to a personal conversation. No lurkers or haters. And no ads.
“The idea is to give people a chance to share how they really feel in a vulnerable, one-to-one setting. In playing around with the app, I had conversations with people about how to make friends in NYC and why it sometimes feel like others don’t care about us as much as we care about them.” – Jordan Crook, writing for TechCrunch

“Instead, experts recommend that victims hibernate the computer, disconnect it from their network, and reach out to a professional IT support firm. Powering down the computer is also an alternative, but hibernating it is better because it saves a copy of the memory, where some shoddy ransomware strains may sometimes leaves copies of their encryption keys.” – Catalin Cimpanu, writing for CDNet
