You may or may not know that WhatsApp is owned by facebook. While there might not be censorship on this platform like you get with twitter, facebook and youtube, there is something else to be concerned with. When you install WhatsApp, you have to agree to their terms and conditions. These terms and conditions are rather long-winded and it’s rare people bother to read them, but by agreeing, you’re essentially allowing facebook to gather data from your WhatsApp account. Take a look at our recommended alternatives below.
Our top recommendation
Telegram has proved to be an excellent platform which refuses to kneel to the morally corrupt, cancel culture generation. It was created by two Russian brothers who strongly believe in privacy and free speech and has been going since 2013. The global elites have a strong dislike for this app because they can’t control the content on it and strong communities free from Government propaganda are often born from telegram groups.
It’s similar to WhatsApp in the fact that you can message friends and create groups, but it offers a more social aspect too. You can create and search for “channels” where people post things you might be interested in and you can also install a variety of community developed “bots”. Bots are an excellent feature you won’t find in WhatsApp, they allow you to configure the telegram experience to your needs. Create polls, play games, download media from various platforms, tweet direct from telegram, integrate translation services… the list of bots is large, here’s some of the popular ones available.
