Telegram Gaining More Momentum
Now, we’ve already discussed the economic contributions of Telegram in Iran. However, after the recent ban was over, the numbers are expected to go much higher. This means people and especially businesses are taking the most of this environment’s advantages and are using the given opportunities.
After Telegram was restricted in Iran, the necessity of such social media apps has certainly been felt more in the country, even by the government’s officials. These statistics show that this social media platform doesn’t seem to have any substitutions in this country and lifting the recent ban on this platform reassured its users to continue using Telegram as their main social media app. These numbers provide great potential and opportunities for Iranians to conveniently spread Persian content for a very wide audience in their preference.
