Thank you. This project explains clearly why it's important to stop
relying on them and what alternatives there may be:

Yes, PeerTube would be interesting to add to share videos. Self-hosting
on day one may not be immediately feasible, other existing instances may
be used initially. Regarding Facebook, I am not sure how you measure
that efficiency but we're past the point of naively believing it only
has benefits, in fact it's the opposite. Look at the right column
"Facebook in the news" at https://deletefacebook.com/ or "Reasons not to
use Facebook <https://stallman.org/facebook.html>".

Right now https://www.libreoffice.org suggests using Twitter, Facebook,
G+ (which is effectively dead), YouTube and Reddit: 100% non-free
platforms where anyone deciding not to use them can't contribute to
spread the word.

diaspora*, Mastodon, discourse and others could be considered as viable
alternatives now, but I think it should be another thread and given
proper discussion space.

Thank you, looking forward to providing any help I can.
