Alternative IM Clients For Whatsapp, Messenger and Telegram on Linux

Whatsapp, Messenger, and Telegram are by far the most used instant messaging clients in the world and while they are used by millions, Whatsapp and Messenger, both of which are owned by Facebook, do not have an official desktop client for any of the desktop platforms.

Telegram, on the other hand, has got official clients on all the main platforms including Linux and while it’s mostly appealing, it’s always nice to have alternatives.
