PKBNEWS has launched an official Telegram channel, where you can find the latest political news in Canada.
This is part of our strategy to reach our audiences where they are.
And with over 700 million monthly active users, Telegram is a natural place for PKBNEWS readers to find our content.
What is the telegram?
For those unfamiliar with the app, Telegram is a free messaging platform that boasts of “speed and security” as part of its main features.
Because it’s cloud-based, you can use Telegram on all platforms (from your smartphone, tablet, or computer).
A certain level of encryption is used for messages sent on the platform.
And there’s also the added security if you use the “Secret Chat” feature, which uses end-to-end encryption.
According to Telegram, these chats “leave no trace on our servers, support self-destructing messages and do not allow forwarding. Also, secret chats are not part of the Telegram cloud and can only be accessed on their original devices.
As with many other messaging apps, you can create group chats (up to 200,000 participants), make voice calls and video calls within the platform.
Finally, anyone can create a channel to broadcast messages to an unlimited number of people. And this is where you will find the content of PKBNEWS.
