Although something like that is possible, unfortunately it would likely 
let these other websites track our users in undesirable ways. For 
example, for Facebook although we could modify our main web page 
<https://www.iana.org/time-zones> to contain something like the 
following ...

<div id="fb-root"></div>
<script async defer crossorigin="anonymous" 
<div class="fb-share-button" data-href="https://www.iana.org/time-zones" 
data-layout="button_count" data-size="small"><a target="_blank" 

... this HTML would help Facebook track our visitors, even visitors who 
don't use Facebook.
