You must have heard about Telegram, maybe through a friend somehow or somewhere on the Internet. The IM app is getting more popular by the day, as most people proclaim it’s better than WhatsApp. The company has just announced that they have surpassed 100 million monthly active users.
350,000 new users sign up for the service everyday, and they deliver more than 15 billion messages daily. Incredible stats for a startup less then 3 years old. The service is always updated with new interesting features, and so far we haven’t heard them disclose any plans to monetize.
I recently downloaded the app, but ditched it after a few days. Almost everyone I know uses WhatsApp, and until that becomes the case for Telegram, I may not be switching soon. All the same, congrats to Telegram for hitting this milestone.
