Warning: Socialize.js loaded twice - When looking in the browser console as a page loads

When loading a page that contains the social sharing component, you may see the following warning message in your browser console:

**** Socialize.js loaded twice ****
The concern with this warning message may be that the Javascript running twice may slow down page loads. This is actually not the case, because the browser will cache the JS on the first load of the script. Even though the script is running twice, it is only downloaded once from our servers, thus no slowdown will occur.

Steps to Duplicate

  1. Enable social sharing
  2. Add the social sharing component to a page
  3. Load that page with your browser console open
  4. The warning appears
