The list and appearance of the Facebook Social Plugins can be viewed here:

If a user calls up a function of our online offer that contains such a plugin, his device establishes a direct connection with the Facebook servers. The content of the plugin is transmitted by Facebook directly to the user's device and integrated into the online offer by the user. User profiles can be created from the processed data. Therefore we have no influence on the extent of the data that Facebook collects with the help of this plugin and that’s why we inform the users according to our state of knowledge.

By integrating the plugins, Facebook receives the information that a user has called up the corresponding page of the online offer. If the user is logged into Facebook, Facebook can assign the visit to his or her Facebook account. When users interact with the plugins, e.g. by pressing the like button or posting a comment, the corresponding information is transmitted directly from your device to Facebook and stored there. If a user is not a member of Facebook, it is still possible for Facebook to find out his IP address and to store it. According to Facebook, in Germany only an anonymized IP address is stored.
