No one would willingly exchange privacy for the right to use a free application; it’s nonsensical. And honestly, most people are tired of this crap and are retaliating by moving to a new platform, specifically Telegram.
According to the announcement made by Pavel Durov, the founder of Telegram, on January 13, the application has seen an impressive surge of growth. In the last 72 hours, Telegram has had 25 million new users, and in the first week of January alone, it has surpassed over 500 million monthly active users.
This defiance is a clear sign that people will not accept everything easily and blindly, even if it comes from a Tech Giant like Facebook.
