"We do not assist Facebook in its data collection regime through use of Facebook social Like buttons or by offering Facebook logins."

There is a facebook like button in their blog in the side bar. What am I missing?

Might have been after you commented, but at the bottom of the article:

>Apologies for the Facebook Like button on this Medium page. We’re just about ready to get off Medium as well, so that’ll take care of that!
