We’re Moving From WhatsApp to Telegram

Everyone is here. You are missing out. This is a typical hype for the famous messaging app WhatsApp. However, Data Axis Node has decided to drop WhatsApp and continue with Telegram messaging app in the operation of the business. This is after serious analysis and comparison of the two apps.

Ever Since WhatsApp was acquired by Facebook, it’s privacy policy has been moving towards a Facebook integration. We understand that it is unsustainable for any business to acquire a product to only accumulate dust. Somehow Facebook has to make money on WhatsApp. Therefore, Facebook will be collecting data from your WhatsApp to be integrated with the Facebook companies. By February 8th 2021 if you don’t agree with WhatsApp new policy, you might as well delete your account. Simply put, you’ll be booted out. 

As Data Axis Node we do not agree with the new WhatApp privacy policy. This new privacy policy is more like the straw that broke the camel’s back. Therefore, by January 30th 2021, we are moving our messaging chat to Telegram. As a business institution we feel Telegram does provide a flexible setup that would be scalable to a wider customer service. This however does not mean we have abandoned the Facebook companies. We still have a page on Facebook.

From the time we joined Telegram, we have seen a number of our contacts joining the messaging app. We believe this may continue to trend. From now on, we feel safe to say we will be moving our resources towards Telegram.

The other best feature Telegram provides is unlimited storage. This “Means all your text messages, images, media files & documents will be saved on their cloud. You can log out and log in any number of times from any number of devices simultaneously without losing any data, you don’t need to worry about backup & restore. You can view the active sessions and see on which devices are you logged in now. Thereby you can download any file any time anywhere.” Siraj Abbas. But you might argue that what if there is a breach in their cloud. Well, that is a topic for another day.

Both WhatsApp and Telegram are free to use. As Andrew Lewis once posted on the internet that “If you are not paying for it, you’re not the customer; you’re the product being sold”. Telegram feels to be a lesser evil than WhatsApp. The data WhatsApp generates is a copper mine to these tech giants. Over reliance on these monopolistics services may stifle innovation which is a result of the free market. In the time when big tech somehow has grown so big such that they have the power to cancel the President of the United States leaves no chance to anyone who disagrees with them. 

We believe in freedom. Freedom of speech, Freedom of Assembly and many other freedoms guided by the Christian values. Therefore, our clients and members of the public are free to contact us from all other options we are providing on our contact us page.
