In this guide, NextPit explains how to find and join a Telegram group, whether private or public, with or without a t.me invite link.
Just note that a Telegram group can have up to 200,000 participants and it is impossible to create a secret group exchange, so your group chats are not end-to-end encrypted.
However, a Telegram group is already private by default, which means that only people who have been invited or have a “t.me” invite link can join. It is also possible to make a group public, where it will then appear in the group/channel search results and be joinable by anyone.
The channels also offer an entire media metrics section with analytics tools and stats on traffic, engagement, and works. A Telegram channel has the same function as an official Twitter, Instagram or Facebook account of a media organization, institution, personality or company.
For example, NextPit COM has a Telegram group called “NextPit COM Community” that allows the readers who are members to chat directly with the journalists. Well I have to admit that I’ve given up managing and moderating this group for the past few months, I’m very sorry

How to Join Via a Aggregator?
Telegram’s search function can be quickly restricted. You will find that many websites offer comparisons and selections of the best Telegram groups, also known as “Directory”.
I personally find such sites rather opaque, the content is almost never useful or verified as content mines are what they are.
Telegram offers a dedicated page on its official website where you can browse groups and channels based on multiple categories. You can also search by name, description, or keywords.
Join Telegram via Group Invitation
At the top of the screen you can see the number of subscribers. Look for group invite links. When you find the group link, click on it and select the Join Group option.
