Social Sharing Update: Mission Accomplished!

I want to thank those of you who wrote to me with suggestions for dealing with the privacy problems that arise when websites use social sharing buttons. The good news is that I think I have found a solution that works. It’s software called Love Button, published by deLucks GmbH. At the foot of each post, you’ll see a sharing icon that you can click. When you click it, you’ll see several options for social sharing as well as for printing or emailing posts. As I understand the software, no data is transmitted to any third party until you make your second click.

And so I say “Mission Accomplished!” Please let me know if you have trouble with the new icons, and please share your thoughts on internet privacy or any other topic.
