Pinterest keeps expanding. Telegram is bringing good old forums back in a new format. In our article, you will find last month’s news on social media.


Forum revival

Groups with over 200 members will now be able to create separate chats within groups for discussions. For example, a channel for job offers can now create three different chats. Job offers in one channel, placing portfolios and self-presentations in the second channel, and holding conversations in the third channel.

Each topic thread will have its own notification settings and it will also support the standard tools: pools, bots, pinned messages, games, and so forth.

To activate a new topic, admins should go to the Group settings section, opt for the Permissions tab, and choose people who can create new topics.

Unique usernames

You can now attach a few unique public names via the Fragment platform. Users can buy and sell those as they please. People will use the gained name immediately or save it for later.

Outside the social platform, the names will be displayed in two formats — username.t and t.me/username and can be shorter than five symbols. The ownership right is secured with a TON blockchain.

Video-messaging transcription

Users with a premium account will transcribe the speech from the video to the text. The tool is like the one used for transcribing audio messages. You will need to press A next to the video.

It will allow users to find out what the message is about even if the circumstances do not let them listen to it at that moment.
