Connect Armidale on Telegram
A new Telegram chat group has been set up for the people of Armidale and surrounds. This new Telegram group has been created to help connect people to people, and the idea that problem talk creates problems , solution talk creates solutions is a view that embodies this chat group. This is not a Counselling or support group although the group is run by Melange Counselling. The hope for this group is to provide a secure , safe place where people can feel more connected with others in their local community. Telegram offers a different approach to most chat apps and I feel is suited to providing a new and unique way for people to come together in a safe and secure online environment. If you have any questions or feedback please email Darren at
To join the group on Telegram you will need a Telegram [free account] and access to this link below, which is the link for the chat room;
A little about Telegram;
Q: What is Telegram? What do I do here?
Telegram is a messaging app with a focus on speed and security, it’s super-fast, simple and free. You can use Telegram on all your devices at the same time — your messages sync seamlessly across any number of your phones, tablets or computers.
With Telegram, you can send messages, photos, videos and files of any type (doc, zip, mp3, etc), as well as create groups for up to 200,000 people or channels for broadcasting to unlimited audiences. You can write to your phone contacts and find people by their usernames. As a result, Telegram is like SMS and email combined — and can take care of all your personal or business messaging needs. In addition to this, we support end-to-end encrypted voice calls.
Q: Who is Telegram for?
Since Telegram groups can have up to 200,000 members, we support replies, mentions and hashtags that help maintain order and keep communication in large communities efficient. You can appoint admins with advanced tools to help these communities prosper in peace. Public groups can be joined by anyone and are powerful platforms for discussions and collecting feedback.
In case you're more into pictures, Telegram has animated gif search, a state of the art photo editor, and an open sticker platform (find some cool stickers here or here). What‘s more, there is no need to worry about disk space on your device. With Telegram’s cloud support and cache management options, Telegram can take up nearly zero space on your phone.
Those looking for extra privacy should check out our advanced settings and rather revolutionary policy. And if you want secrecy, try our device-specific Secret Chats with self-destructing messages, photos, and videos — and lock your app with an additional passcode.
