Telegram and Mark Zuckerberg of Russia

Telegram Definition

telegram (Greek tele: distant and gramma: letter) is
a written message transmitted by using an electric device.
The message is carried along wires, and the text written
or printed and delivered by hand or teleprinter.


The first telegram in the United States was sent by Morse on 
11 January 1838, across two miles (3 km) of wire at Speedwell Ironworks near Morristown, New Jersey, although it was only later, in 1844, that he sent the message “WHAT HATH GOD WROUGHT” from the Capitol in Washington to the old Mt. Clare Depot in Baltimore.

Now a day by the continuous development in technology, scenario has been changed completely at all the levels. There are various options available for communication through internet by use of applications. Here we represent one of these applications: Telegram Messenger LLP!

About this App

Brothers Nikolai and Pavel Durovis the CEO and founder of Telegram, a messaging application that attracted over 60 million active users in less than 2 years since its start in 2013.

Pavel Durov is often referred to as the “Mark Zuckerberg of Russia.” Prior to Telegram, he founded Vkontakte (called VK) in 2006, a most popular Russian social network in Russia that serves as an alternative to Facebook. In February 2016, Telegram announced that they had 100 million monthly active users, with 350,000 new users signing up every day, delivering 15 billion messages daily.


“The no. 1 reason for me to support and help launch Telegram was to build a means of communication that can’t be accessed by the Russian security agencies.”
– Pavel Durov, Co-founder.



Secret Chat

One of the most interesting feature is Secret Chat. A secret chat uses end-to-end encryption, meaning nobody but the sender and recipient can read the messages – not even the Telegram staff. Telegram uses a symmetric encryption scheme called MTProto. The protocol was developed by Nikolai Durov and other developers at Telegram and is based on 256-bit symmetric AES encryption, RSA 2048 encryption and Diffie–Hellman key exchange.

10,000 users

Another interesting feature of is its extending group chat facility. Initially, it was 200 then it was expanded to 1000 members, again after some time it becomes 5000 people, and now increased to 10,000 users in a single group known as Supergroup.

Admin/User Restriction Feature

Being the admin of your channel it is possible to make other persons admin with some of the feature disabled. Same is applicable to User Ban Feature.










It is user friendly on both Mobile and Desktop OS Platforms.
