Telegram is more than a messenger in Belarus ⋆


A platform where all the political forces and initiatives are present, Telegram has enabled the development of political life in a country where politics seemed a priori impossible.

The Telegram messaging application, initially positioning itself as a fast and secure means of communication, has long since turned from a communication tool into a full-fledged social network.

The telegram has become an environment from which political actions are initiated, which cannot manifest themselves elsewhere. The app shows how technologies are changing the established way of life and enabling people to overcome mistrust in an atomized society.

Doubling of user share

Telegram is the second most popular messenger in Belarus. It is used by 43% of the public according to the information policy. Moreover, this application has almost doubled the share of users in the past year. Most of the population uses Viber (73% according to information policy).
