I would like to move from Google Analytics to our own software. Piwik is open source, and we are running our instance on our own server. I'm going to be comparing them for a few days. Barring any major issues, we are going to move over to Piwik.
On a related note, vimeo videos carry Comscore code that tracks their embedded videos.
If this really bugs you, I've added the option to toggle off the video previews in your profile. (Maybe I will make this vimeo specific?) You will still see the video if you click on the post itself, however.
Feedback is appreciated. Thanks!
However, they might simply have a policy not to open a discussion regarding the issue. But, IMO they could have at least added: "We appreciate your feedback, and have made note of it", which would likely be true. If a majority of 'plus' members complained, they might change their approach.
