While we wait to - hopefully - hear good news from #switchingsocial, a tool I use is alternativeto.net: you can select one app or software and it lists the alternatives, that can be filtered per type of license and OS.
I log in often and upvote the FOSS and ethical apps I like, hoping to make a difference. 1/2
Since the website is basically a big database where alternatives are added by users, it clearly isn't as good as switching.social was.
As an example: user comments can be useful, but the site doesn't promote ethical software so GAB ended up being listed first as an alternative to Twitter. 😩
