Creating a link that everyone can see and use in Telegram is not as easy as it sounds. One might think that an app designed to promote communication would better simplify the process for its users, but that is sadly not the case. Instead, there are somewhat complicated steps to sharing links on the Telegram Group chat app, but we have you covered.
Sharing a Link with a Group You Are In
When you are in a group in Telegram, you might want to share a link specifically with that group. Ideally, only the people in the group will ever see it, and that is what you intend to do when you are linking in this manner. If you want to do this, you need to:
- Open the Telegram app
- Select the name of the group that you wish to share this information with
- Take a look at the list of members in the group
- Ensure that everyone on that list is approved to review the link you are about to send
- Send the link that you wish to share with the entire group.
This is an impressive way to convey information to the people you need to just within that group. Now, you may run into a problem if people are missing from the group you wanted to be added to see the link you shared. What do you do if that is the case? You will need to get them added in as rapidly as possible.
How to Add More People to the Group Chat
When you are working on the groups you have in Telegram, don’t forget to look at the “add member” feature displayed next to the group. You want to give that a once over because you may decide to add some people who are not currently in the group. If the link you share is fascinating to someone else in the group, they should probably hear about it from you.
To add someone, click on the “add member” link when you open up your group and see the current list of members. You will need to know the screen name of the person you opt to add to the group, but as long as you have that information available to you, then you should be all set. You need to ensure that everyone who comes into your group is invited and happy to be there. You don’t want to share a link if there is any danger that someone might get offended by it.
Once you have completed both of those steps, you should be good to share all of the links you need to. Keep in mind that you have the option to revoke a link that you have placed into a group at any time. That said, other people from the group may have already saved the link before you were able to revoke it, so you should keep that in mind. Nothing that you place out on the Internet is ever truly erased.
Can You Get an Invite Link to a Group You Don’t Own?
It turns out that you can get an invite link to a group that you don’t own on Telegram. What you need to do to make this work is to get into the Telegram app and find the group that you are interested in. Click on the group to go to their homepage. Tap on the group’s name that you want and look for something that says “notifications.”
Just above notifications should be the invite link. You are tasked with long clicking on that link copy it onto your clipboard. From there, you can paste it wherever you need it to go.
You should understand that spreading around an invite link is only a good idea if you are sure that the people already in that group would be welcoming to other people that you are inviting to it. That is not always clear with every group, so make sure you understand exactly what they want from the people that are genuinely invited into the group.
Do not just assume that you and your friends are welcome to come in. That may be the case, but you should check with the creators behind the group before simply assuming that it is true.
That’s all you need to know about sharing group links around Telegram. It is a little trickier than it perhaps should be, but at least you know that it is possible, and you know how you can make it happen for yourself and anyone who might want to follow your lead.
