Not everyone is worried about the decline of Facebook’s top-notch communications services, which have been jittery since Wednesday afternoon (13). As is often the case, Telegram, a messenger competing with WhatsApp and Messenger has announced a growth in new users over the last 24 hours.
According to Pavel Durov, founder and executive director of Telegram, the platform received 3 million new subscribers in that period. Although it is small in comparison to WhatsApp. It has more than 1.5 billion monthly active users. This is a significant number when we consider the short time frame and the fact that Telegram has 200 million monthly users.
“I see that 3 million new users have signed up for the Telegram in the last 24 hours. Good. We have real privacy and unlimited space for everyone, “Durov said in his official channel within the messenger.
In recent years, Telegram has been releasing user privacy protection as one of its main differentials. The service does not collect chat information to target ads. Also, it does not sell user data to other companies. And it promises that it will never profit as a primary goal. Currently, Durov himself is funding its development.
