Which is a very pretty page, and also a very privacy-endangering page. Some of you are already zeroing in on those two Facebook icons, and you are NOT WRONG, Facebook is a total horrorshow and libraries should never, ever, ever do free advertising for it. Now, I’m not saying “libraries need to take themselves oﬀ Facebook right this minute,” because I completely understand that one’s complicated. I’d love it if you did, don’t get me wrong, but I certainly can’t order you to. I AM saying that libraries should dump Facebook icons oﬀ their main websites. Facebook does not deserve to have libraries lend them attention and credibility. But no, I’m afraid this situation is worse than that. The real privacy problem here is that innocent-looking little gray icon at top right that says “Share.” Share. Shaaaaare. Sounds all nice and friendly and community-minded, doesn’t it? Well, if you click this innocent-looking gray icon *CLICK* what you ﬁnd is a bunch of what developers call web bugs, and the rest of us usually call social-media trackers. Lakeshores’s website is sharing data about its patrons’ visits with Twitter and Facebook and Google and LinkedIn and Reddit and Pinterest. If any visiting patrons happen to be logged in to any of those platforms during their visit, the platforms can add all the information about their visit to their data dossiers on that patron… and even if patrons aren’t logged in, platforms often try to ﬁgure out who they are anyway. And I don’t have time to go into this, but those data dossiers typically get sold all over the place and used for manipulation and discrimination in all kinds of ways, so this is NOT a good thing for patron privacy or security or even just well-being. And I had to poke through a wilderness of code to ﬁgure this out, but my impression is that this data-passing happens whenever somebody loads this page, whether or not they actually click on the Share button. So I don’t want to hear ONE WORD about how patrons are making a choice about their privacy here, because they’re not. Lakeshores made the choice, and it’s not the choice that respects patron privacy.
