I'm not usually in this part of the forum, excuse my ignorance, but I haven't found anything after a search.
Has anyone tried to load the social sharing widgets (Addthis in our case) only onclick.
It was one of the ideas mentioned in a great presentation by Vitaly Friedman. If this worked it would cut the size of our pages in half, as well as better privacy.
We have the usual Addthis orange icon that opens on hover over, plus the email tell a friend which is great, but is it possible to code their js so that they only load if the visitor actually clicks on them. I presume there'll be a second or two while the script loads but hopefully just 1 click will be necessary.
What do you guys think?
