It is very much a if a user sees offense in anything you do, you could have someone report a post that they find offensive and be punished even if it follows the guidelines.

I dislike they way they handle elections, they way they handle reporting and banning. Someone can get banned for saying something that wasn’t even offensive and they have no one to talk to about it.

It also had a habit of not notifying you even if you have notifications on which was annoying and frustrating.

Anonymous Reviewer

Desktop notifications can be sometimes annoying. Sometimes in desktop, notifications flood the screen and blocks other programs, which is annoying.

Some system errors are annoying at times, such as the search engine that does not work well at times, messages that do not send, and some less relevant ones.

Facebook has my life on it!

Reviewed a year ago

I began using Facebook in 2007 and had been with it ever since. All my photos, videos, posts and basically the history of many seasons of my life is stored there. It is not so much a place for me to communicate - I use WhatsApp and Telegram for that. But it is like a cloud storage for me. I know that if I have some photos from an album, Facebook is extremely useful to organize my media there, write...

Pros

To be able to share my photos and videos with my friends in one place, as well as to organize and store it all neatly! This is the best thing about Facebook for me! Also if I write a post there, all my friends will see it - and it will not disappeaar after 24 hours like those on WhatsApp or Instagram.

Cons

I don't really have anything I do not like about Facebook - except maybe the mobile Messenger app, I prefer WhatsApp & Telegram to it. overall it is very useful and I use it regularly for over a decade.

The best messenger app so far

Reviewed 2 years ago

This is the best chat app i've used so far. It doesn't crash, it's as secure as they come and it's fast and light. Relatively small user base is a drawback, also the too-simple group chats organization. It's my app of choice and for the moment i think it's the best on the market.

Pros

The variety of sticker choice, the custom chatbots and the speed of the app. The simpleness of the UX and the seamless animations. It's not owned by any of the big 4-5 tech companies. The security is a priority.

Cons

The small user base, lack of facebook meta data exchange, the lack of channel support inside group chats.

Like whatsapp but slightly more secure

Reviewed 2 years ago

better than whatsapp.

Pros

Easy to use and crossplatform, there is a desktop app. If people know Whatsapp, they know telegram. This is slightly more secure than whatsapp which is owned my facebook who can use the meta from both to understand your connections and build contact lists. Telegram claim to have access to neither the converstation data or the meta. This is yet to be disproven.

Cons

Not as many people use this app due to whatapps market dominance. It is as easy to install and use however so people can be converted.

Effective and easy to use IM tool for individuals and teams

Reviewed 3 years ago

We are using Telegram for team communication. It is really fast and works seamlessly between platforms like mobile and desktop. There are some tradeoffs with the speed of communication and integration options. We take sides with speed for now.

Pros

Telegram is very fast and easy to use instant messaging application. Both mobile and desktop apps work seamlessly, fast and efficiently. Stickers are very fun to use. Group functions are very extensive where managing members and assigning a couple of admins to a group is very useful. Some automation options should be possible with IFTTT. With these functions, Telegram is not only for personal use but also for teams to communicate daily.

Cons

There should be built-in automation options like recurring reminders. Integration options are limited compared to other business-oriented IM apps. If you use Telegram for business, your personal and business contacts and groups should easily be jumbled.

Handy business communication tool

Reviewed a year ago

Telegram has been perfect. Unfortunately it is not used as mainstream as hoped, so I am still stuck using Whatsapp and Telegram interchangeably. I would drop Whatsapp in a heartbeat.

Pros

Telegram has a simple interface with all features you can expect from a chat software. Very easy to operate and has intuitive features for making groups/teams for business or just messaging friends and family.

Cons

Telegram is near-perfect for business and personal use. The only issue we have had with Telegram was that it is not business compliant. We used Telegram for 90% of communication regarding business, but due to a change in laws we had to switch to teams as it is more secure. Security is the only improvement I can think of for this application.

Encrypted messanger

I was using it simply because someone asked me to:) I'm not afraid enough about my privacy to switch from FB messenger to Telegram in private matters.

Pros

There's only one thing you may even consider using Telegram - it's better approach to data and privacy than other popular tools. If you care about it - that's the messanger for you.

Cons

Nothing fancy, and I deffinitely wouldn't use it for business purposes. It lacks clarity and features comparing to Slack for example. For private usage - it's alright.
