There is a lot going on in germany currently concerning facebook and its plugins (actually it's about all social media plugins, but as always facebook is on the forefront).
For a while now it was very clear that facebook is breaking the german law concerning data privacy.
But now data protectionists from Schleswig Holstein are taking action.
You can read all about it here: https://www.datenschutzzentrum.de/presse/20110907-facebook-must-budge-considerably.htm

Of course a few very smart people (from Heise online http://heise.de) came up with an idea how to integrate social plugins without letting them gather information about users who don't intend to use the plugins.
Basically you have a deactivated button and only after clicking the button the actual plugin is loaded.
More about it here: http://www.heise.de/ct/artikel/2-Klicks-fuer-mehr-Datenschutz-1333879.html (sorry it's a german text, couldn't find an english one).

Of course facebook didn't like that idea and tried to go against it by forbidding to use the facebook logo in any way.
You can see Heise's solution and the source code for it here:

I think it's a very cool idea, that shouldn't just be implemented in Germany and so I designed a few buttons. No code, just the design.
