@Divert In my experience Telegram doesn't have many, if any ads. I heard you could pay for them somehow but haven't encountered any.
@Divert Ok, that's good. I was wondering if that was something new.

Telegram is ok as long as you treat it like it's for low-value communications. I have no problem asking my buddy how he is today, but i wouldn't discuss any serious plans on it.

@blini

@comradeagle @blini Yes I do the same, for serious stuff I use in my own instance . Which uses the protocol. I also trust Briar and Jami

Signal has very good reputation but It still bothers me that it is centralized and US based

@Divert
Think there was an announcement that Telegram will start showing ads in their app and that is what the picture is alluding to.
@comradeagle @blini

@blini @Divert the ads you're speaking of are between channel owners typically. big russian channels will take money to advertise other channels via normal posts. i haven't seen any english channels doing that though. however: telegram is considering ways to sustain itself via ads on public channels, though it's not concrete yet.

@cowanon
and 👌 is not an instant messenger. But still a very good communication tool.

@georgia @Divert why wouldn't you just use facebook messenger at that point then?
@georgia @Divert my point is that its shit, conversations is on f-driod
@georgia @Divert just upload a fucking JPEG OF A CAT IF YOU NEED IT YOU CATTLE
@georgia @pernia @Divert

deltachat could be kawaii with a little elbow grease and everyone already has email.

@pernia @georgia
Just beware that XMPP is not end to end encrypted by design nor by default.

@georgia @pernia @Divert I don't think they've implemented them yet, but a few weeks ago they announced that they'd be implementing ads soon
@pernia @Divert @georgia I installed it but never use it. Looks like it's already time to jump ship.
I wonder if the fdroid version will include the ads, though. Apps on fdroid are usually ad-free.
@pernia @Divert @galena woops i mixed threads i thought you were talking about the screenshot i posted of a weird fdroid app
@georgia @Divert @galena literally pay attention next time this is not the pruple tobacco smoke thread
@georgia @Divert @galena why? why would you download literal smokeware that you have NO idea what it does
@georgia @Divert @galena DUDE ITS LITERAL S-M-O-K-E-W-A-R-E IT DOES ABSOLUTELY NOTHING
@Divert So long as you have the server resources to manage the users and all their room sessions? sure.

@Divert
Intentaré hacerla en español para mis contactos je. Está muy buena. Muchas gracias Divert 🤗.

@Divert i personally would not trust Signal, purely based off of the fact that it was recommended just like Zoom was. also, i've never used or heard of signal before this week, while i've used telegram for almost 4 years.
@SCyclops @Divert
Take the app that progressive watchdogs groups claim is the "most dangerous for minorities" and a "hub of Nazis" and use that. It probably has the best encryption tech and gatekeeping features.

@Divert Falta un tick en la columna de Telegram: "encryption by default", aunque probablemente tenga que ir en amarillo por sus características
