The contact page on each Stack Exchange site links to Facebook, Yahoo, and Google:


I am puzzled. If I have an issue for which I need to contact Stack Exchange, why would I find links to Facebook, Yahoo, and Google helpful?

  • Many sign up/login through Google, FB or Yahoo. I think that is for them if they have problems having trouble in logging in.

    @NogShine Ah... that is not obvious at all, but it's a very plausible explanation.

    Fwiw those were always meant to be a temporary experiment. While we did see a good drop in the amount of third-party support requests when that was implemented, the volume has increased and we are working on alternate ways of handling the contact page to catch these requests without having out-of-place icons at the top. Those will eventually disappear.
