It seems that you're using an outdated browser. Some things may not work as they should (or don't work at all). We suggest you upgrade newer and better browser like: Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer or Opera

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.
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.
@barleyguy, thanks for that plugin recommendation. Installed and using. :D
Do want !
@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".
YES I hate this stuff
Yes please. Whenever I hear anyone talk of Tweeting I have the urge to punch them.
If your using Opera, just put these
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.
I hope this is going to be applied.
I agree. The only reason these are popular is because companies force it down are necks
The capital NERD topic :D btw voted...
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...
Kjetterfaen hits it on the nose. Great post spot on.
I dont' really care either way, but I do understand the request. Social networking sites are just plain asinine. This has my vote.
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".
The GOG Experience ought to be as highly user configurable as possible so I say "why not !"....
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, I want to be able of removing these features from my options tab...
Agreed. I hate most of this social site shovelware style crap. I am tired of seeing it when I know I will never use it.
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.
Farcebook and Twatter is more like 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 should be an option on EVERY site. Fucking Facebook bullshit.
This needs to be done. The more external connections a site has, the less trustworthy it seems in my opinion.
fully agree. get rid of it.
Yes, yes, yes, please, please, please!
lol, i thought i was the only person who didn't care.
