Yes, you're right on all counts.

Unfortunately, we also see that those damn icons (Twitter, FaceBook, LinkedIn et al) are not only a tool being used to track us, but also a tool for miscreants that can use such links to reverse-engineer your accounts when breaching a seemingly unrelated one.

This whole rigmarole is getting too complicated. Maybe if we slap a dash of "AI" it'd help ? Nah.
