WhatsApp mass move to Telegram, even Erdogan

WhatsApp's controversial privacy update has caused a mass migration of users to others , such as and Signal, as they do not seem to agree with the decision of Facebook that wants their data.

The Telegram service surpassed 500 million active users earlier this year, and now the of the company Pavel Durov reports that the number of accounts activated on the platform increased even more in recent days.

Η αύξηση έχει επιταχυνθεί τόσο πολύ που “μπορεί να είμαστε μάρτυρες της μεγαλύτερης ψηφιακής μετανάστευσης στην ανθρώπινη ιστορία”, εξηγεί ο Durov σε μια δημοσίευση στο this week, revealing that even political leaders have joined the platform.

The presidents of Brazil and Turkey have been using Telegram in recent days, in addition to the leaders of France, Ukraine, Israel, and Mexico, who have been active on the platform for some time.

Ο Durov τόνισε τη δέσμευση της Telegram για διαφάνεια στα α επικοινωνίας, εξηγώντας ότι δεν υπάρχουν ενεργοί αλγόριθμοι παρακολούθησης στην πλατφόρμα.

“We are proud that political leaders, as well as many public organizations, rely on Telegram to fight misinformation and spread awareness about important issues in their societies. Unlike other networks, Telegram does not use opaques to decide whether a subscriber will see content to which he has subscribed or not. As a result, Telegram channels are the only direct way for leaders to reliably connect with their audiences.”

WhatsApp has already announced a delay of 3 months for the news , explaining that he wants to give everyone more time to understand what's changing.

Ωστόσο, η εταιρεία αναφέρει ότι οι καταναλωτές δεν επηρεάζονται, καθώς τα δεδομένα τους δεν θα κοινοποιηθούν στο Facebook ή σε τρίτους, επειδή η νέα αφορά μόνο τις επιχειρήσεις.

The new deadline for enforcing the new privacy policy is May 15th.
