I think the move for WhatsApp to do the privacy changes was based more on the business side of things. It’s going to be a challenge for anyone to move and stay long on Telegram as the people they communicate with might not be on Telegram.
A lot of my friends moved to Telegram and because of them, I am too now forced to sort of use Telegram, but I still prefer using WhatsApp as it’s integrated with two other platforms that I use daily on which I share my views.
An audio message will serve the purpose much better than lengthy scribes used to renew a policy or inform users of social media platforms. A person like me with a broad family, a user of social media for that matter with a large family and friendship base would prefer subscribing to WhatsApp to reach a larger audience.
Not too many people are aware of Telegram or have subscribed to it. WhatsApp is also user-friendly; it features a lot of various functions that are attractive to its users. And I’m comfortable with it.
