7.4 Social media buttons

On my website I have included buttons for Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest to promote webpages (e.g. “like”, “pin”) or share (e.g. “tweet”) on social networks like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest. These buttons work using pieces of code coming from Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest themselves. This code places cookies. These social media buttons can also store and process certain information, so a personalized advertisement can be shown to you.
