The “original” share buttons automatically transmit data of your visitors to the social network sites as soon as they visit your website. They do not need to click on a share button for this and therefore have no choice, if they want their data to be send. The German computer magazine c’t has developed “Shariff”
(ʃɛɹɪf) that follows the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR – Regulation (EU) 2016/679). This plugin adapts the Shariff concept and provides an easy to use solution for WordPress. We currently support 32 services in 25 languages: AddThis, Bitcoin, Buffer, Diaspora, Facebook, Flattr, Flipboard, LinkedIn, mailto, MeWe, Odnoklassniki, Patreon, PayPal, PayPal.me, Pinterest, Pocket, Printer, Qzone, Reddit, RSS, SMS, Stumbleupon, Telegram, TencentWeibo, Threema, Tumblr, Twitter, VK, Wallabag, Weibo, WhatsApp, Xing.
For more information about the Shariff project check out the original GitHub project and read about the project itself c’t information page (in German).
You can automatically add share buttons to posts, pages, the main blog page, product sites and many more as well as use it as a widget or add the shortcode
[shariff] manually to your pages or themes.
