What is the proposed social network app to replace Facebook ? Mastodon / Diaspora clients?



I was wondering what application will be proposed to replace Facebook ? I can’t seem to find anything about this.

I think it would be useful to have a table indicating what alternatives are available pre-installed when using this project ROMs and which apps can be added to provide a better experience depending on what propietary apps were in use before coming here. If there’s such a table I can’t find it, I was hoping for something like this list at Framasoft, maybe just linking there would help.


I personally would not recommend any social network app. I use Facebook in WebApps which is exactly what you need. You can even set, that environment acts like desktop, so you don’t even need any app to chat because chat is accessible there. Its completely separated from your system, so no harm can be done.


I’m on Mastodon (discord, Telegram,…) but 95% of my family & friends are on WhatsApp.
WebApps seems not working with WhatsApp.
If anyone has found a solution…


I used to use Metal Pro but since I migrated to /e/ no way to use the paid version of Metal. My research led me to Frost for facebook on F-Droid

It is not the same experience as the one on the native application but we quickly take the landmarks.

Both Metal free/Pro or Frost for facebook applications are web wrapper and have the advantage of including facebook messenger but without audio or video calls (I don’t use it).


Or try Hermit, can be found on APK Pure: https://apkpure.com/p/com.chimbori.hermitcrab
