Why I no longer recommend using #AlternativeTo

1) The website hosted on cloudflare and contains some Google trackers.
2) It let's you filter for #FreeSoftware , but doesn't explain the value of it.

@BurungHantu @switchingsocial @Framasoft 's degooglisons-internet.org/ and my blog at @paulakreuzer
