Important Legal Issue - FB Like Button is not GDPR Compliant


#1

Dear Artbees,

As you may have known, following May 2018, GDPR has been enforced in Europe, and every company is obligated to adhere to preserving European citizen rights.
In that regard, you may notice that Facebook Like/Share buttons are not compliant, since they are transforming user data to Facebook before they get clicked, and this is considered illegal by GDPR.
Due to the legal importance of this issue and following juridical problems, I request a change in implementation of such buttons in the theme.

There is already some other implementations by other communities who are trying to implement this features into WordPress. I am sure they can be integrated into FB Like buttons in the theme.

The important point is that no information should be transmitted without direct user consent.

Thanks and best,
Soroosh
