A setting to disable all "social" features (like facebook)

Added byWTF's avatarWTF

A simple setting in user profile which, when enabled, disables loading in the background of all that facebook, twitter, google +1 crap. Don't use it, don't want it.

Agreed. I like to think that GOG users are more mentally evolved than the low-brow morons that use social media. And those that have put requests in for greater inclusion of social media should just piss off onto it and stay there!

This is really important to keep users' privacy. We all know of browser plugins to block those, but the gog.com website would be a lot more respectful to users by giving them the choice to access a version of the page with no social media spying tools.

Use Ghostery - addon/plugin/extension/whatever for Firefox or Chrome.

In Chrome, install DoNotTrackMe+ - It will block the +1, Like etc... buttons on most websites.

@Keeveek not that you'll probably see this but it seems you don't realize that even if you don't click on the button it still tracks what you're seeing. There's a big difference between "hardly noticeable" and "non-invasive".

If your using Opera, just put these .footer_social.face{ display:none!important;} .footer_social.twit{ display:none!important;} .footer_social.gplus{ display:none!important;} .footer_social.yout{ display:none!important;} .footer_social.rss{ display:none!important;} into a txt file rename it to whatever.css and add it to the site preferences under my style sheet

I use Ghostery in all my browsers. And no-script or an equivalent. And flashblock. It's bloody annoying at times, when pages actually need external scripts, but it gets the job done. Ghostery alone should be able to block the social sites.

If you can read german, Heise (a big german IT publisher) has already made something:http://www.heise.de/extras/socialshareprivacy/You click once to enable facebook and once more to "like" something. The option to enable facebook can be integrated into the user account options. The only difference is, that with this system you get slightly different logos, as especially facebook threatened Heise when they used the original logo in the beginning. You can't show the logo without them tracking you...

I don't even see these social features on GOG normally. The buttons are so small and non-invasive I don't know why you want them gone entirely. Most probably because you just hate facebook "because i hate it".

Please, yes. It's fine that these functions are here, and if most users actually utilize them then it makes sense for it to be "on" by default... but I would very much like to be able to turn it all off.

I agree that I never use these and would rather see them gone. There's a plugin for Firefox called Priv3 that blocks these unless they are clicked on BTW. In the meantime, I recommend people to install it.

if you want to add social features that's your business but there should be an option of opting out if we don't want to and not be penalize for not participating.

This needs to be done. The more external connections a site has, the less trustworthy it seems in my opinion.
