EasyList is not blocking social media buttons. Maybe you've opted-in to the "Remove Social Media Buttons" feature on our first-run page?! Anyway, blocking social media buttons is not something that Adblock Plus does by default.

Technically, it's not possible
to unblock all
ads all over the web that are acceptable. The Acceptable Ads whitelist is still growing. If you've encountered an ad that is acceptable
you can ask the site owner to apply for the whitelisting

We do not remove any parts of the content. If you see parts of the content being blocked please report this as a false positive and one of the filter authors will fix it.
