I don't like social media, at least the ones I know about.

But lots of people do, so including apps for the popular ones in Lite Software is fine, and advertise the fact if it'll bring people to LL.

There are apps already in Lite Software which I wouldn't touch, but I don't have to. So that's fine.

And I came to Linux and LL  partly in search of more privacy and security, so we need to be mindful of not making it seem "just like Microsoft" etc. and putting people off.

Incidentally, I see Firefox now has a "Facebook Container" feature option, which isolates FB and its spy/cookies from other tabs.
SN.

my posts are from a recently new non-techie, the experts will have all the serious stuff.

I also consider cloud services to be part of social networks because there people exchange links, files and even letters. Isn't it like in a social network? Therefore, if LL-users could see in Lite Software the ability to install Google Drive, for example, it would be great, since installing it causes problems for many users now.
Google drive has some inherent additional steps beyond install... Although 2 methods can be used for install albeit 1 of which being a PPA..
Tested methods:

I have already written a simple instruction on how to install a proper (with the indicator on the panel) Google cloud client (not a mounted folder!) easily and free of charge. I'll post it in the thread with your link a little later, since I have some personal things to do now.

Becomes a matter of preference - I prefer a mounted folder similar to a shared network folder vs. an icon but similarly Dropbox has the same.. Then there is the availability for offline access...

Those listed in the referenced thread were the 2 tried at the time..  Becomes a matter of ease of use, ease of install and ease to update. If any of those become cumbersome folks would most likely default to web access.
