Social media buttons

On our website, we have included buttons for Linkedin, Twitter, and Facebook to promote webpages (e.g. “like”, “post”) or share (e.g. “tweet”) on social networks like Twitter, Linkedin, and Facebook.

Most of these technologies have a function, a purpose, and an expiration period.

A function is a particular task a technology has. So a function can be to “store certain data.”

The purpose is “the Why” behind the function. Maybe the data is stored because it is needed for statistics.

The expiration period shows the length of the period the used technology can “store or read certain data.
