You were asked – TMP link

We've been experimenting with the Facebook Like/Share buttons for a while now. Should we keep them, or get rid of them? Are you using them?

28% said "get rid of them"
27% said "keep them"

In the comments, some were confused about this type of button versus other types of Like buttons (i.e., to 'Like' an individual post).

There's also the issue that Facebook might be able to trace people through having these buttons on our pages, plus the fact that people with Facebook blockers won't see the buttons anyway.

Therefore, the buttons have been removed from our pages.

Thank you. Never used'em, and the pages seem to load faster now, too… :-)
