    I installed telegram. I have around 300 contacts in what's app and not even 50 On telegram. Amongst those 99% have uninstalled it. It's a sad moment for me. It looks faster but I don't think I can make my contacts switch back to it.

    I won't be using it as in my country none of my friends use Telegram. Over here Whatsapp is a monopoly and no body is willing to make the change so it makes no sense trying out telegram.

    I installed it today just to see if it could be an alternative to Whatsapp, but it was the same as with Viber or WeChat. While every contact I would write to uses Whatsapp, I had like 10 to 20 contacts on Viber, a few less on WeChat, and around 5 to 10 on Telegram.

    Spread the word... It's somewhat better than WhatsApp, IMO.

    It amuses me to see people up in arms about privacy settings in facebook and how facebook don't honor any form of privacy for its users... And then slit there wrists because WhatsApp is not working

    Newsflash for the sheep, WhatsApp is Facebook's now, your location, conversations, images, telephone numbers, contact details are added to your advertising ID which facebook sells...

    There is now a better, safer more secure messenger app, Telegram, the sheep will eventually move over but it will take a while for the transition

    I really don't like this over-excessive use of the word sheep in this context. I am well aware of everything you mention, I still prefer to communicate with Whatsapp than not to communicate at all. And I don't even have a Facebook account.

    But enjoy feeling so good about yourself that you can be arrogant and condescending, only because you are using an alternative app. For some people this seems to be an achievement.

    Those two things can't force me to leave WA. In fact, what bugs are you talking about? Any example?
    Secret chat is not a must have feature though.

    Fact is, nothing can replace Whatsapp. Those bugs are not barring you to use it, right. As you said, you are still using it. I find hike a very good IM app, but no point to use it. Its all about number of contacts and WA leads the fight here. I don't see delay in msg delivery either. WA is still good and competent app. I bey, the day it will come up with updates, people will change their thoughts.

    I can't use all Emojis in Telegram. Even when I send a emoji, it gets changed to WP style emoji. Is it just me or is this a bug?
