I am involved in researching this from another pov: In disccussion with FB Dev support: It is not officially possible to use like - either via js or iFrame - without loading FB's js. FB's js does do digital fingerprinting of users.

IOW: whether or not your user touches the FB 'like' button, they may be spied on by FB.

Is there a way to reference our Facebook page and Twitter accounts on the pages as click throughs without jeopardizing things? I would really like to refer traffic that direction as it's a missed opportunity for engagement.

From our project meeting 4/3/12:

Clickthrough to twitter/FB page on http://directory.occupy.net/about

Facebook: www.facebook.com/OccupyDirectory
@OWSdirectory (Twitter): https://twitter.com/#!/OWSdirectory

See attached buttons...or find your own :)

I've added block the site with a quick code snippet that point to the FB and twitter accounts. This can be seen on DEV

Because the block is content, it will need to be manually created on the live site as well, if this solution works.

Thank you!!!! Looks great and works as advertised!!!

BUT...was very, very difficult to find (an I was looking for it!).

Can the images please be located in a more accessible/visible location on the pages????

Let's revisit this when the design update anticipated from Thiago. There aren't too many other places to put this right now. Likely there'll be an additional navbar appearing at the top of the page to match the family of occupy.net stuff.

We'll work on a sidebar for the about and get involved pages where we can have a more pronounced call to action to the social media.
