In the last couple of weeks, the social media platform Telegram has been evolving as one of the hottest places for content consumption. Unfortunately, the main reason for Telegram’s popularity as a media platform is one of the most tragic topics in recent times: the war in Ukraine.
The platform is one of the few places where no censorship is applied, and information is freely distributed. But you must be aware that this does not mean that there is no propaganda. There is, of course. However, Telegram is the channel for distribution for many media outlets blocked or restricted by the Russian authorities.
Telegram is growing fast. The mechanism for content distribution is straightforward: one must follow public or private channels. To do this, you need to register and install the platform on your phone or computer. Be aware that it can be risky because the authentication is via phone, and there may be privacy concerns.
