as you may have heard the Court of Justice of the EU decided that website owners are jointly responsible for the initial data processing — and must either obtain informed consent from site visitors prior to data being transferred to Facebook, or be able to demonstrate a legitimate interest legal basis for processing this data.
Facebook’s Like buttons transfer personal data automatically, when a webpage loads — without the user even needing to interact with the plug-in — which means if websites are relying on visitors’ ‘consenting’ to their data being shared with Facebook they will need to change how the plug-in functions to ensure no data is sent to Facebook prior to visitors being asked if they want their browsing to be tracked by Facebook.
It seems the only way to meet those requirements is to make Facebook likes a two step process, that is to de-activate the like button by default, and allow users to activate it if they wish so. Find example attached.
We need to know if there is any plans to add such an option in JFBC in the near future.
