Telegram is the new black. 30 channels to subscribe to. I've started scrolling through my Facebook feed much less frequently. 1-2 interesting posts out of 10 is the maximum for fb. Telegram is different - I know what I am subscribed to, and the authors of the channels value my time. There are no likes and sharers in it. Don't post cats, scandals, and other potentially viral content - it won't help you gain more coverage and get new subscribers. But getting unsubscribes is very difficult. In Telegram itself, there is simply no channel search. If you can't remember its url or don't know where to find the link, that's it. It contains only the best selections you've chosen, only the best Telegram channels.
Statistics of the most popular Telegram channels
I am subscribed to >40 channels. More is already physically difficult. Below are the most interesting of them all. I recommend all of them terribly. I mark the authors, because the country should know its heroes and subscribe to their profiles and on fb (and for this post to get more coverage, of course).
Telegram channels about texts/media/journalism/news/tech/pop culture
- @abbsol - Pavel Fedorov on how to write. He also runs the blog channel "Netology" (@netologyblog). Also a good one.
- @theIdealist - translations of English-language articles. The articles are good, but if you know English, it is better to read in the original.
- @meduzalive - Medusa has several channels, but I like this one best. Each news item has a short lead commentary. So that you don't have to read the news afterwards.
- @themedia - The channel of the "Us and Jo" project, which Alexander Amzin created. Alexander also wrote an excellent book, "Internet News Journalism," which he once mailed to me. Alexander, thank you again!
- @thedailyprophet - The channel of former Afisha editor-in-chief Alexander Gorbachev. I reread every post several times. Alexander retells masterpieces of English-language journalism, writes about movies and books. I bang my head against the keyboard because there is no time to read everything.
- @bestarticles - one of the most popular channels in the Russian segment. Selections of the best Russian-language articles from Mikhail Kafanov. His interests on 95% coincide with mine. I am beating my head against the keyboard, because there is no time to read everything.
- @clickordie - Pavel Gorodnitsky Channel, creator of click-or-die.ru. He writes about all kinds of things - rap battles, Euro 2016, media, technology, gifs he posts. He often writes about SM on Telegram. It was an interview on his blog that got me interested in the channel.
- @ndrgrnd - a new distinctive channel about harsh realities. The author speaks about politics and life without any shyness of expression or restrictions on censorship. There are some good posts.
- addmeto - links about the tech with the sub lines. All valuable channels are like this. Grigory Bakunov runs them.
- @sobolevmusic - Oleg Sobolev's channel about music. He hasn't written for a long time, but it's worth rereading the earlier ones.
- @forevernotes - Saprykin channel, you should read simply because it is Saprykin.
- @culture_crab - I had already forgotten about him, he was silent for over a month, and then he broke out a great post about the matriarchy in Game of Thrones. The channel is hosted by Georgi Birger.
- @techsparks - annotated links to news about hitech. Andrey Sebrant is the host.
- @americanelections2016 - if you follow American politics as much as I do. Pavel Demidov is the host.
- @grishaprorokov - Grisha Prophet's channel. He also has an awesome podcast, Blitz and Chips.
- @russica - Mikhail Zygar's NOT channel. About Russian politics. Wildly interesting. I have not yet found out who is the host.
- @megabitch - Anastasia Krasilnikova's channel (Afisha Daily) about sexism in the Russian media (there's hell in the Russian media)
- @brodetsky - Andrei Brodetsky's channel, from Apparat. In a little while, this channel will get more views than the whole site.
- @stalin_gulag - the same Stalingulag not limited to 140 characters of Twitter. The most popular channel in this selection (~120,000).
- @sinod - Yuri Sinodov's channel. He writes rarely, but very well.
- @sergeykorol - Sergey Korol's channel. He has subscribed to the paid (!) newsletter more than 500 people. I'm one of those who pays Korol 100 rubles a month.
Telegram channels about psychology and self-development
- @vadimkurkin - Fascinating Psychology | Vadim Kurkin. Blog of a psychologist for those who want to understand and realize themselves. Author's articles on personal growth and the psychology of relationships, psychotherapeutic practices and translations of foreign psychologists.
Telegram channels about SMM & Telegram
- @tgmarketing - a channel hosted by Fyodor Skuratov on what smm in telegram is all about. Fedor is the cofounder of the chat analytics service Combot, and soon he will launch a platform for advertising in Telegram channels.
- @content_king - Content is king! A good channel about content (creation, management, distribution) and content marketing (strategy, tools, communication). Tips, tricks, secrets, trends, cases of content marketing.
- @aboutSMM - There are a few more good smm channels.
- @amplifr - Amplifr channel (a service for analyzing and publishing posts on social networks). Amplifr is cool, but expensive. I recommend it to anyone who isn't already using it. I haven't used it in a year, but Nat, I'll be back as soon as I get rich!
Useful Telegram Channels
@apps4life - The author talks about useful applications for the iPhone and iPad. Tests, shares his experiences and makes reviews. Actual and useful information.
- @namochimanturu - a channel for hypochondriacs by medical journalists Dasha Sarkisian, Marianna Mirzoyan and Karina Nazaretyan. It helped me a lot once (I thought about going to the doctor, but I realized I was fine)
- @poebistika - a channel with links to stickerpacks, hosted by Igor Belkin.
- @excel_everyday - A great channel if you often use Excel in your work.
- @itrabota - Lenar Khalikov is running a rubric of IT vacancies in Tatarstan. If anyone suddenly needs a job.
- @reposta - Reposts from other channels. Mostly from the ones I've linked to here:)
- @games_apps4life - about games for iPhone and iPad. News, reviews, cheats and more.
If you have something to write about, you should have started your channel yesterday. But it's not too late today. The cost of attracting a subscriber - ridiculous (1-5 rubles. per one), the coverage of the post - huge (60-95%), as well as CTR - 10-15% subscribers will click on the link in the post.I myself have a month leading a channel about travel - tips, tricks and all that. It already has an unashamed >1,200 subscribers, so you can tell me about it here, too. https://telegram.me/travelhacks
