Messaging platform Telegram has claimed that over the last 24 hours 30 million users are connected on its platform. Actually this is the time when Facebook was down for about 8 hours. Telegram founder Pavel Durov wrote in a message on the Telegram Channel that 20 million new users are connected to the platform during the last 24 hours.
Telegram is a rival site of Facebook. This indicates that Telegram has got the most benefit of Facebook Down.
Earlier, Facebook, Messenger and Instagram were stalled for several hours, causing the users to face problems. During this time, users were faced with difficulty in logging in. Users were also sharing screenshots with their feedback on Twitter for this problem. This problem was faced by India, including the US.
However Durov has not told the reason for this increase of users on telegram. A year ago telegram informed that the number of its active active users has crossed 20 million users. Telegram is a free encrypted messaging service platform. However, it has not got much popularity in India.
