⚠️ This entry is already over one year old. It may no longer be up to date. Opinions may have changed.

So Telegram now has ads. But unlike the ads from Google, Facebook or Apple, the ads are not personalized and much more privacy friendly. The ads simply consist of a maximum 160-character message with no external links and are displayed only in large public channels.

If that helps to fund Telegram in a sustainable and privacy-friendly way, then I think that’s a good thing.

In my opinion, Telegram is doing a lot right in terms of user experience, which the rapidly growing user base seems to confirm. But so far it seems to be financed solely by the founder, and even millionaires run out of money at some point.
