    Hi maikel9112,

    Thanks for contacting us, I’d be happy to assist you! We have recently joined forces with ShareThis and can confirm that the cookie you’re referencing is one of the cookies that is served as part of our ShareThis integration.

    In order to continue providing free tools to our amazing users, and for us to continue to invest in these tools, we provide data services (anonymous and in aggregate) to other companies. This is similar to other popular sharing services, for more information please feel free to read the privacy policy for more details http://www.sharethis.com/privacy/.

    Version 1.8 brings new features, including analytics from Facebook and support for ShareThis counts and analytics in an upcoming release. To enable analytics, non-personally identifiable browsing data is stored and aggregated, and also used for interest based targeting of ads elsewhere.

    Since you are updating from a previous version, these features are only activated if you click to accept the terms.

    Hopefully this provides clarification, please let us know if you have any more questions.

    How do I downgrade? I don’t like ShareThis. I don’t want to be there poduct So either make it optional, or provide a downgrade version without sharethis.

    Hi theyosh,

    Thank you for reaching out and providing feedback.
    You’re able to downgrade versions of our widget by going to our developer page and downloading an earlier version.

    Here’s the link to our developer page:
    https://wordpress.org/plugins/social-media-feather/developers/

    Here’s a screenshot of where they are hosted:

    Please bare in mind that older versions are no longer supported and do not have access to new features.

    If you have any other questions please do let us know!

    Update: It appears that v1.7.11 is ok too if you have a copy.

    If you’re following these instructions, you need to revert to v1.7.9 to get a version before ShareThis added tracking to the plugin.

    While I’m happy to know that the Social Media Feather developer made money from their excellent efforts by selling, this is a deal killer for me too. RIP

    Which other plugin do you recommend now for facebook sharing?
