I agree, the takeover of Keybase by Zoom & Giphy by Facebook are classic examples of "big fish gobble up small ones".

As an end-user aware of developments like these, would you still continue using those products or look for alternatives?

I'll keep using it as long as it works and as long as they don't mess it up ... regarding Keybase, I was just an occasional user anyway, as for Giphy, well there are alternatives, but none of these apps are critical for me, as long as it works and they don't make it annoying to use I'll just keep using it.
