WhatsApp response helped apps like BiP and Telegram
But coupled with the wave of misinformation on social media, Facebook’s lousy past performance on privacy, and its bad reputation for puzzling over changes to its various service contracts, WhatsApp faced a huge backlash and users began to flee to rival instant messaging services like BiP, Signal, and Telgram.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk also advertised Signal by posting a tweet last week, which we can translate to more than 42 million followers as “Use Signal”. As the discussions grew, instant messaging apps like Signal, Telegram, BiP, Dedi and so on became the most downloaded apps on Android and iOS app stores. Currently App Store in Turkey Telegram is the most downloaded applications, announced that more than 25 million users in the last 72 hours register.
