Is it just me that hates these things?

 

Far too many times when trying to go forwards or backwards a page, these flippin things spring into life & splash rubbish all over facebook or where-ever else...

Can they not be moved to somewhere that won't encourage accidental activation?

I'm not a great fan of them,either.Wish they could be removed.

Agreed. I suppose from giffgaff's view they don't mind whether the page is shared accidentally, or purposely. They want them shared as much as possible.

nope ...not just you...

 

pain in the butt having to make sure I move my cursor out of the way before scrolling or having to close the share box off if I forget.

 

The share button couldn't be in a worse position.

Yes the idea is here but not a very satisfactory answer really
