If you think Facebook has no competition, just ask Telegram who experienced a spike in registrations during the recent Facebook outage


Facebook is often seen as an untouchable behemoth in the social media realm, a site so big that no competitor can come close. But if you trust Pavel Durov, the founder of messaging app Telegram, even a simple stumble from Facebook like a few hours of outage can have pretty serious consequences for its user base.

On Thursday, shortly after Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp came back online, Durov said on his Telegram channel (via TechCrunch) that "3 million users signed up for Telegram within the last 24 hours."

Telegram is interesting in that it allows for massive groups without adverts, bots, has channels, and even automation notifications via APIs. Telegram also has a desktop browser client that does not require your phone to be connected. I've also seen quite a few of my own friends suddenly appearing on Telegram this month.

Russians protested for free internet

1. The Moscow Times:


Last May, when communications watchdog Roskomnadzor moved to block the popular messaging app Telegram, some 12,000 Russians turned out to a protest Svetov organized — which, he is eager to point out, was last year’s largest street demonstration.

With the state quashing independent media in recent years, YouTube has become an increasingly popular tool among opposition activists seeking out audiences. The platform is now viewed by 82 percent of the Russian population aged 18-44, as The Economist reported last week. In spring 2017, opposition leader Alexei Navalny took authorities by surprise by using his YouTube channel to inspire thousands into the streets for the first mass protests against the Kremlin since 2012.

Congratulatory telegram handed over to graduate 50 years later


The telegram originally arrived in 1969 at an Ann Arbor apartment Fink shared with three classmates a day after he'd left to attend graduate school in New York.
It ended up in an old filing cabinet now owned by a digital marketing company based in Ann Arbor. Christina Zaske found the telegram in December after removing the bottom drawer to retrieve a piece of paper that had fallen inside.

Well, better late than never, am I right?

Herr über meine Daten


Seit dem ich #Hubzilla und #Matrix / #Riot Zuhause hoste bin ich der Herr über meine Daten.
Beide Systeme sind sehr vielseitig und mit vielen weiteren Diensten und Servern verknüpft.
Mit Hubzilla steht mir auch die Welt zu #Diaspora, #mastodon und anderen Sozialen Netzwerken offen.
Matrix verbindet sich wie Hubzilla mit vielen anderen Servern und ermöglicht mit "Brücken" auch die Kommunikation zu #IRC, #Telegram, #Slack oder auch #Whatsapp.

Ich versuche das Internet so zu leben, wie es ursprünglich erdacht wurde 😀

Why I think Telegram Messenger is Better than Whatsapp for Managing Large Groups apart from one Feature


Telegram has stayed a step ahead of Whatsapp for group management since day one except for one newer feature that Whatsapp recently introduced. For very large groups though Whatsapp's feature is not the big decider...

Telegram does highlight many of their niche advantages at https://telegram.org/faq#q-what-makes-telegram-groups-cool such as:

* Telegram is full cross-platform (even has a Linux desktop client) and does NOT need the phone to be connected to work. Phone can be off, have a flat battery, be lost, etc.
* Telegram groups can have up to 200,000 members each.
* Replies, mentions, hashtags - Easily trace a conversation and keep communication efficient, no matter the group size.
* Smart notifications - Mute the group to get notifications only when people mention you or reply to your messages.
* Pinned messages - You can pin any message to be displayed at the top of the chat screen. All members will get a notification — even if they muted ordinary messages from... Show more...

Telegram v5.2 adds global group permissions, undo chat deletion, groups up to 200k members, and more


Way better Group management is a pleasure because if these get messy your life becomes a misery if you manage them. You can tighten groups all the way down to be read-only for followers, or restricting use of stickers, videos, GIFs, etc.

I still love Telegram too for its ease of integration with 3rd party applications like publishing from Home Assistant etc. It does many things that Whatsapp has not thought about yet (like a desktop app that does not need the phone to work).

And whilst some countries want to ban Telegram for not allowing their governments to have a backdoor into their encryption, for some reason Whatsapp is not banned which makes me think about why not...

If the client part is open and the server part is closed, it is obvious that the software itself is not open.

Telegram is open source and has a 100% open API, so you can build your own fork of Telegram with your UI
