Tracking Social Media Interaction

Using the PiwikTracker class and with the doTrackAction function, which the docs ( ) say you can pass the actionTypes of “download” or “outlink” to it…

however if you specify something else (Twitter, Facebook, etc) would it break things?

I have not seen a plugin for tracking social media outlinks anywhere, and this seemed like it might be an alternative to authoring a plugin as they are doing very similar actions for something that would be very useful in the Piwik core.

Would you like to track clicks on FB likes for example? For this I highly suggest using Custom Variables of scope “page” Custom Variables Analytics - Analytics Platform - Matomo
