    Facebook Messenger vs Telegram opinions
    This alternative is disputed. Facebook Messenger is still a legitimate alternative to Telegram, but it might have issues that some users think are important.
    JohnFastman

    Nasty, closed-sourced, privacy-invading app by a company whose business model is based on selling private user data to the highest bidder. Stay away if you value your online privacy and security (where will your data be in 20 years and how could it be used against you then?). Telegram, Signal and Wire are hugely preferable because they use encryption.
