Today's global crash of Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp drove me to rethink social media strategy. Facebook has been an endless stream of problems for years due to its well documented personal data auctioning, frequent account hacking, Zucking of anything their algorithms or human watchers deem inappropriate, and the frequent account hacking. Combining all of that with today's prolonged global crash, I decided to explore what other social media platforms offer similarly flexible user experience (private messaging, public posting, groups, and live video chat) and Telegram is right at the top of the list.

I have created a channel (not to be confused with the YouTube channel; a channel on Telegram is mostly just a public place for any type of content) for TransRefuge. If you want to join Telegram and join the TransRefuge channel, you follow this link:
TransRefuge
A channel distributing helpful and encouraging content for transgender people.

A little update. The channel feature on Telegram seems to be a "one to many" broadcast system, not a peer to peer interaction platform. That type of functionality appears to be located in the Groups environment. If you want to join the TransRefuge Group, use this link:
