Per bug 701759, we have developed a new social sharing JavaScript library that keeps user data private until they decide to share a web page. The code is currently in code review, but will need an Infrasec review. There is not a lot of code to review so it should go pretty quick. Bug 723761 is the technical implementation of the sharing library.

As soon as the code is past code review, I will provide a link to the repo to review.

I will continue some additional testing around this, but based on a review of the code and the demo page, it seems pretty good!  Very happy to see this completed!
