Yes im sure, the icon is there but the link is dead, click it and all it will do is open a blank window via some javascript code im unsure how to block, you'd probably have to find the right js file and that might block other things too.

Disable adguard and click the link and it asks you to wrtie something then share it on your facebook.

crossed wires. my issue is with the icon and the link being visible doesn't make sense to have them there when they do not work.

Oh no i get what your saying just saying, just havent let it bother me suppose it could be removed.

Edit
This should hopefully sort it out without issues elsewhere.

Quick solution
Code:
reuters.com##[class="module shareLinks horizontal"]
Removing each social link
Code:
reuters.com##.twitter
reuters.com##.linkedIn
reuters.com##.facebook
reuters.com##.google
reuters.com##.digg

thank you both for looking into this, unfortunately both
Code:
reuters.com##[class="module shareLinks horizontal"]
and
Code:
##.shareLinks
are too strong. they filter out the email and print buttons as well. so it seems Nameless rules for filtering out the widgets individually is the best bet for now.

woah 11k lines! i'll wait for added import functionality in version 6. i'd like to have my cake and eat it when it comes to user filters.

yeh 11,003 is the one i installed but it does more than just social media link removal, it also removes other annoyances and also messages about sites using cookies, they have one thats just for social media which is around 6k lines i think i only had a quick look at it and decided i wanted the big list lol, i since removed it and just decided to add things to my user list when required though.
