Social API has been removed except the sharing functionality

Published: | Categories: Miscellaneous


The most part of the non-standard Social API has been removed except for the page sharing functionality implemented by various service providers. The Firefox-specific API was introduced back in 2012 to integrate social features like Facebook Messenger into the browser without having to relying on add-ons. However, it has not been actively promoted nor widely used, hence the deprecation. Mozilla has already notified a small number of affected providers offering a sidebar.
