How to Bypass Big Tech | A List of Alternatives

Alternative platforms for the common man

Combing through my tech reading list of the day, I came upon this listicle on the excellent It's FLOSS website. The post provides a list of open-source resources that can act as alternatives to the platforms currently managed by members of the big tech elite (Google/Apple/Microsoft/Amazon/Twitter/etc.) I figured it was a good start to a list of free media platform alternatives.

I'll be updating this list on a regular basis. Don't hesitate to contribute your suggestions using the comments below.
