A Message from the Anash.org Editorial Team
Yesterday, we announced that, in response to the high number of users downloading the Telegram App, Anash.org would be opening an official channel to send out breaking news stories and important news alerts.
Since that announcement, concerned Anash.org readers reached out and alerted us to some of the dangers so easily accessible on the app. Unlike WhatsApp, which is a messaging service, Telegram also hosts “channels” which can be found, and joined, with a simple search. Many of these channels contain unsuitable, or even illegal material.
In response to the concern, Anash.org will be shutting our Telegram channel. We encourage all parents to properly research the dangers in the app before allowing their children, or themselves, to download it.
Anash.org will continue to send out breaking news and important alerts on our WhatsApp chat, as well as our other social media platforms.
