I am well aware of the concern with privacy that LWN readers share ;-) as well as the sensitivity to anything created in the internet less than 20 years ago that many here seem to also have. `The internet was fine as it was in 1992, IMNSHO, why couldn't it just stay like it was` :-P
I had assumed that all 'social / share' links would only be part of page that "Post a Link" takes you to, or that there would be a toggle for it in the account settings. Something along these lines.

Having said that, I believe it's possible for a website to construct 'like'-style buttons which do not damage your visitor's privacy: it's just that the default ones supplied by the socials do.
