We use the plugin Shariff, which was developed by the computer magazine c’t.
Excerpt from the plugin description:
The original share buttons automatically send information about their own visitors to social networks. It is not necessary for them to actively click on one of the buttons, but this happens already when the page is opened in the background. Users have no choice whether or not to send information to Facebook and Co. The German computer magazine c’t has therefore developed “Shariff” (ʃɛɹɪf), with which data protection-compliant part buttons can be integrated that meet the requirements of the Basic Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO – Directive (EU) 2016/679). This plugin implements the Shariff concept in an easy-to-use form for WordPress. It currently supports 32 services: AddThis, Bitcoin, Diaspora, Facebook, Flattr, Flipboard, GooglePlus, LinkedIn, mailto, Mastodon, Odnoklassniki, Patreon, PayPal, PayPal.me, Pinterest, Pocket, Printer, Qzone, Reddit, RSS, SMS, Stumbleupon, Telegram, TencentWeibo, Threema, Tumblr, Twitter, VK, Wallabag, Weibo, WhatsApp, Xing.
