Partially they are tagged with the remark „Facebook Social Plugin“. You can find an overview about the plugins here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/.
When users are accessing our website, such plugins establish a connection between their browsers and the servers of Facebook.

This is possible when you are simultaneously logged in to Facebook during your visit on our website. Visitors who don’t want to allow this can log out of Facebook before visiting our website.
