PC – SOS

An Internet Security Blog

SocialVibe Widget

Posted by Bob Zenith on August 8, 2010

So, I added a new widget to this blog, it’s called Social Vibe. It’s an optional (and free) way to help the blog earn carbon offsets and raise money to help various charities that are involved with helping the environment. It’s on the left sidebar (close to the bottom).

However, this widget does add 2 web bugs to the blog’s homepage (Google Analytics and Facebook Connect). The amount of normal cookies you get from this blog has not been changed. Don’t forget, you can easily detect and block web bugs with the add-on Ghostery (for Firefox)

I haven’t decided if I’ll keep the widget or not… I’ll wait a couple of days and see. (Feel free to comment with any opinions). However, in the meantime, I’ll update the cookies page and the privacy policy.
