Telegram is becoming more and more popular each day. Released in 2013, it took over the world through its cloud-based messaging means, implying that you can access your chats from all your devices. 

There are several different features on telegram, but the one we will be discussing today are groups and channels. Groups on telegram can have up till 20,000 members, with features like hashtags, mentions and replies to keep each of them efficient. Groups can be made public and anyone is able to join them. 

On the other hand, channels are used to make announcements for a large audience. Indeed, an unlimited amount of people can subscribe to channels. Each message has a view counter, therefore allowing you to see how many times the message has been viewed.
