Podczas audytu jednego forum natrafiłem na dość ciekawy przypadek. Mianowicie jeśli jesteśmy na stronie strumienia aktywności i klikniemy przycisk "Pokaż więcej elementów aktywności" to do naszego systemu śledzącego wyświetlenia strony (zazwyczaj Google Analytics) nie trafiają informacje o tak zwanej wirtualnej odsłonie strony. Ale takie same informacje np. trafiają jeśli będąc w widoku zdjęcia w galerii, klikniemy "Powiększ zdjęcie" (pokaż w lighboxie) Na szczęście jest dość prosty sposób
