Telegram receives more than 50 million users after Facebook crashes


Telegram announced on Monday that it had added about 50 million new users worldwide to its social networking site, following a major crash in Facebook’s services on Monday.

“According to our estimates, in the last few hours, more than 50 million new users have registered with Telegram,” Yuri Kekin, director of Digistat’s analytics department, told RT Channel.

The “Telegram” application for instant and open source messaging, started by Russian programmer and businessman Pavel Trov, has become more popular in recent months, especially in the wake of the announcement by the management of the “WhatsApp” site, to start sharing data on Facebook in early 2021.

Yesterday’s jump came at a time when the social networking sites “Facebook”, “WhatsApp” and “Instagram” were facing a major downturn, resulting in the global shutdown of its work for several hours.

The New York Times also reported that the failure of its sites on Facebook was unlikely to have been caused by electronic attacks.

Shares of “Facebook” fell 5.5% after disruption of site services and “Instagram” and “WhatsApp” sites, while shares of “Facebook” fell to $ 323.56 after a loss of $ 19.5.

Mark Zuckerberg, the founder of Facebook, has lost about $ 7 billion in the US stock market, according to Forbes magazine.
