If the user is logged into Facebook, Facebook can link the visit to his Facebook account. If the user interacts with the plugins, for example, by pressing the Like button or writing a comment, the corresponding information is transmitted from the user’s browser directly to Facebook and stored there. If a user is not a member of Facebook, there is nevertheless a possibility that Facebook may find out and store his IP address.
