Telegram Benefitted From Facebook’s Outage

OSNEPALNEWS, Kathmandu, 16th March: The world sort of stopped for the social media users as Facebook, instagram got halted for certain period of time on 13th of March. Facebook (FB), the world’s largest social network, had to turn to its rival Twitter to explain that its group of hugely popular apps were having difficulties. The social network, along with Facebook-owned Instagram, WhatsApp, and Messenger, suffered the worst outage in its 15-year history, leaving billions of users unable to post, comment, like, message, troll, or whatever it is they like to get up to on the various services.

It does appear, however, that some businesses benefited from Facebook’s flop. The founder of encrypted messaging service Telegram, for example, claimed that some 3 million people signed up to the app during the Facebook outage, which also took down the hugely popular messaging app WhatsApp.

“I see 3 million new users signed up for Telegram within the last 24 hours,” Telegram CEO Pavel Durov wrote in a post, adding that its service had “unlimited space” should anyone else want to jump ship. A year ago the app reported 200 million active users among its ranks.
