So in case of building a social media platform with an option to post photos and camera videos may not be enough, even with a small number of users.
Media to user can be provided directly from S3, but it must be handled first by application and sent to Space.
So, the question: Is App Platform transfer to Spaces counting as an outbound transfer?

Outgoing bandwidth counts if it’s being served to a customer. In your example:
One thing you can do to reduce your bandwidth spend is to serve the photos directly from Spaces. You can make your app prepare the URLs pointing to their Spaces URL and even use the Spaces CDN if you require caching. If you do this, then you only pay for Spaces bandwidth when serving images and reduce the bandwidth used by your app.
