    Like I've said these are butthurt opensource guys who want the crypto to be opensource and are trying to bully Telegram into releasing their source code. I've been using Linux for years and have seen these guys pop up all the time over the years. "if it's not opensource it's government/corporation evil spyware" Telegram is much more secure than most messaging apps but there are more secure apps out there. Being opensource is a great way to prove your security, but that doesn't mean a proprietary software can't be secure also.

    Hello "MyPhoneJustDied", first, let me condole to the loss of your phone, hopefully it was not the ONE ...
    second, I propose that you use the Internet, there is a search engine called "GOOGLE" which easily helps you to find out messenger alternatives:

    hope this helps :rolleyes:

    What didn't I get? Don't get me wrong, I love open source and will admit Telegram isn't the most secure app, I never said it was, but that doesn't mean it's security level is zero which is what your post implied.

    It was weird because you get people saying I'm only on it because family and friends are in it. But it was mainly just watching what people posted in a stalker like fashion. Once I left people started communicating through text, email, phone and just dropping by. I haven't communicated less but more and they are better interactions.

    I use whatsapp and facbook messenger. and I have to say facebook messenger is far superior.

    1) it does everything whatsapp does
    2) it has my family on there
    3) I can use it on my 3 key devices. work comp, phone for commute, tablet at home. (this is really really useful)
    4) the emoticons are goddam hilarious. (pusheen, pandadog and friends, mobile girl MiM)
    5) its easier to quickly switch to a voice conversation (I use this to talk to my fiancee when abroad over wifi)
    6) its a separate app, so if you hate facebook with its news feeds, you don't have to deal with that.

    The only downside is that some people hate facebook, so I have to have whatsapp purely to cater to them

    we go where our friends go I guess
    for instance i use or install both snapchat, telegram, and voxer...but no one I know use it. so, it's pointless I :D

    it's the same with hangouts

    You should ask yourself how many of your friends using possible alternatives.
    What is the use for you if your friends won't use it :D
