There is no intention to integrate social media into Pale Moon - that should be left a free choice (and not biased to a short list) and is best done with one of the many many available add-ons ;)
Please do not send me private messages for anything that could also be posted in the public boards.

On a side note, I keep the social integration toolbar out of Firefox v17.0 by blocking the Facebook website via the hosts file from both of my computers. I did this because some people who use my computers, they have a tendency to use Firefox as their browser choice. I didn't want them accidentally getting redirected to Facebook via a link. By using the hosts file and blocking Facebook, I don't have to worry about the Facebook "Turn On" button putting that toolbar into the Firefox browser.

I'll do the same thing for Twitter and other social sites when these social sites can put their social buttons into Firefox. From looking at what buttons Facebook puts into the social toolbar, when other sites will be able to put their social button into that toolbar, that is going to be one l-o-n-g toolbar taking up lots of space.

If Pale Moon had followed Firefox's lead into social integration, I was planning to do the same thing with Pale Moon. I'm glad Pale Moon didn't go the social route.

Yep, the first thing I did with FF 17 was to turn off the Facebook site, once again it is a case of Mozilla trying to do too many things with their browser to please too many people.

Thanks Moonchild for not integrating social media into Pale Moon. I don't use any social media and love a lean browser and therefore Pale Moon fits the bill perfectly. :clap:

I am new to Pale Moon and am glad to hear that the social api will not be included.

For the life of me can't figure out why Mozilla just didn't develop it as an add on.

I like it better without Facebook constantly being in my face. I always thought it was stupid and if I changed my mind I could just go there. I don't want my browser trying to spy on me too.

Maybe not related to Pale Moon directly but I can tell why is wise not have Facebook integration around. I use Trillian and for avoid to hide from some friends in Facebook I did installed the messenger part of Facebook. The trouble is that when I need to consult Facebook directly in Palemoon Trillian and the web side of Facebook battle to tell me the notifications twice! So I need to close Trillian for focus in the website.

Imagine now If you have Facebook integration and need to see the web page for some reason... BOOOM! No thanks. So why I love Pale Moon is like to use a Lego browser, I can add the pieces I need to made my own browser. :D
