Block social media icons tracking

Social media icons track your online browsing activities. Even if you never click one of these icons, a profile based on your browsing habits can be created and sent to various social network servers. Use Adblock Plus to stop social media sites from tracking your online activity. This means all social media icons will be hidden.
