Too Long; Didn't Read
Telegram and WhatsApp are two messaging apps popular for their widespread use. These apps are almost always placed side by side whilst users debate which is better. The author will share his personal opinion on the Telegram vs WhatsApp debate. My comparison will be based on origin, functionality, and my experience with using both apps. WhatsApp is currently more used than Telegram and it was acquired by Facebook for $19 million US dollars. WhatsApp's association with Facebook raises eyebrows about its security, but WhatsApp's updates are often frequent and annoying, forcing users to download the latest version of the app.
