@yarmo as a lazy, not so up to date privacy minded reluctant user of what'sapp, my question is, what makes signal or telegram more trustworthy ? As I understand they are made by for-profit entities, they may not be doing evil today but companies motto do change (cf Google)
@yarmo @Matter @neil @gogor People are even showing friction to Signal and Telegram. Most of my friends have only used WhatsApp, Messenger and Instagram as means of communication throughout their online life. Getting them to Matrix is even harder with the kinds of excuses they make for even Telegram and Signal.
