There have been many changes in the way social media affects our efforts. I’m sure you’ve seen the times you have visited a website and saw something you thought was interesting, only to later log into Facebook and see it pop up in your newsfeed. This is Facebook putting tracking cookies in everything that is attached to them.

Subscribe, Facebook, Account

On websites that you see a Facebook share button, the company is tracking your activity. As such, the EU has requested any blog, website, or other encounter, where the share button for Facebook is live, identify this to the visitors on their site. I have opted for another approach. I will be removing the share buttons associated with Facebook from my website.

I realize this makes sharing inconvenient. I apologize for that. I am looking for alternative methods that will make or integrate sharing options in a manner that is both positive and secured. Please feel free to offer suggestions in the comments.
