A few days ago I read this article over at Heise about a new era of privacy respecting social media plugins (german) and today I read in Denis’ blog that there already exist a WordPress plugin(german). I installed it today and removed to old Google +1 plugin, unfortunately since I don’t have Facebook (and don’t want/need/whatever) the Like-button won’t work. Though I use identi.ca I also have a twitter-account which I don’t use, it’s more that I have my nickname reserved.
The plugin (with german localization though)
I noticed that this greyish look matches my theme, neat side-effect!
