Toggle switch for Filter for Social Media Widgets on the AdGuard Assistant

It'd be nice if you could add a toggle switch for Filter for Social Media Widgets at the Adguard Assistant. Maybe something like Disable Social Media Blocking Widget for 1 minute.
Sometimes we come across some nice article which is worth sharing. So it'd be nice if we could just disable the social media widgets blocking right from the assistant, Like & Share the article and get back to other works.

They have the unblock site for 30 seconds which covers the share links.

Alternatively you could whitelist the share links if its a site you use alot so "adguard.com#@#div.share-links" should only re-enable share links on the adguard domain.

+1 from me for the request because

That feature loads Ads as well as causes loss of privacy. It's a good feature but only for ppl not privacy aware.

This is not handy for the situation described (surfing, stumbling over an article worth sharing), except one only used a very few sites (and wants to permanently share ones surfing habits on these sites with social media sites)

I like sharing in general (though doing it seldom).
I strongly dislike the data leakage 'social buttons' do and the additional loading time of the pages (some blogs have 3-6 buttons below any blog entry which made your browser load additional (up to) 60+ items). Besides the traffic (mobile traffic is still costly) it takes much longer the longer the latency is.

So the ultimate was to allow a single button on a single page, pretty acceptable was allow all buttons on a single page once (like these 30sec, just w/o the ads etc).

These extensions above could be this single button.
