Social Share Privacy add-on enables your Xenforo web site to load the icons for social sharing web sites including the share counts from your local server.
This offers 2 advantages:
1.) Greatly enhances the speed of your web site
Due to the fact your visitors won't have to wait until code from external web sites has been loaded, the response of your web site will be much speedier and the load time of all your web pages will improve significantly.
2) Greatly improves the privacy of all your web site visitors data
If you open a web page containing buttons from services like Facebook, Twitter & Co., your visit will be tracked by them even if you don't click the button. If you are logged in at Facebook, that tracking information will even be linked to your real identity. Because almost all web sites contain such social share buttons, those networks are able to track you down over all web sites and to build complete browser histories of all their users.
If you load up your site with the original sharing buttons you are — unwittingly perhaps — enabling those companies to track your visitors and also the general usage of your web site, even if your users don't use the buttons or even the social networks. You as a web site owner should act responsible and protect your visitors from it.
This add-on protects the privacy of your web site and your users by loading these buttons and share counts locally.
The buttons are very beautiful, flexible and super responsive! They look perfect no matter which browsing device the visitor uses.
There are many options for this add-on, including a selection of several themes (standard, grey and white), the exclusion of nodes where you do not want to display buttons, the ability to disable the display and caching of share counts, how often the share counts should be updated, several locations to choose from (also a custom location to be placed anywhere you like) and the selection of social networks to have buttons shown. We now also support the usage of Memcached for caching the counters, a nice new variant of displaying the buttons in the sidebar horizontaly (saving space) and an easily selectable new location for the buttons at the top of pages and threads
The text at all share buttons adapt automatically to the language the visitor selected at your board. So there is no need to translate anything.
The following add-ons are currently known to be supported by this add-on by default:
XenForo, XenForo Resource Manager, XenForo Media Gallery, sonnb XenXallery, Showcase, [bd] Widget Framework, CTA Featured Threads, XenMIG portal, XenZine Articles and all other add-ons using the default XenForo routines for their sharing buttons.
This add-on is based at code named "Shariff" created by Heise.de and used with permission.
