Messaging apps


Ambassador to the humans
I'm highly considering deleting my Facebook profile for good. I don't use Facebook proper anymore but still rely on it for messaging certain people. I'm trying to figure out a decent modern replacement for Facebook messenger.

I think Telegram is at the top of my list so far but would love to hear what others here think and what you use.

Whatsapp - only people that have your phone number will be able to contact you.
Why do you care it is owned by FB?

But I would keep the Facebook with a minimal use as a phonebook /white pages"
only you choose the level of use for the FB, nobody force you to post twice a week...:)

Whatsapp if you want Facebook and US intelligence services to read your messages. Telegram if you want Russian intelligence services to read your messages. Threema if you want a 85-year old Swiss mountain farmer to read your messages. Signal is recommended by security experts, but unfortunately not that popular at the moment.
