Telegram is great. But in my country it's in the risk of being blocked. Is there any other social networking platform that:

* is free
* has API
* can be automated (bots)
* supports sending voice and image
* has many clients


  • Not exactly my area of expertise, but have you checked WisperSystem's Signal? Currently available for Android and Desktop, an iOS app is "in the works". Not sure whether it fits all your requirements, though (especially concerning the voice and bots parts).

  • Signal seems a nice app, but I couldn't find API on it. API and automation is what makes telegram unique. I don't need privacy. Commented Dec 3, 2015 at 14:10
  • What "social" features do you need? Friending? Following? Groups?

  • What should the API be able to do? Everything?

  • 1
    In that case, some Jabber/XMPP solutions might fit in.
