comment “Your” vs “My” in user interfaces
Yes, clearly they're trying to be informal, and some users may appreciate that. But some users may find it a bit cheesy, or patronising, or both. It certainly doesn't add any meaning or clarity.

comment Isn’t the FAQ label obsolete by now?
Go for Help. Support is a bit jargon-y, and not universally understood.

comment Suitable positions for social links on a website
Note that the OP is asking about links to social media pages, whereas the AddThis advice concerns sharing buttons. They are different buttons with different purposes, so they may need to be placed differently. In particular, links to FB and Twitter pages etc. are akin to contact information, so users may be frustrated if they are not in the footer, wherever else they are.

comment Should a toggle button show its current state or the state to which it will change?
@supercat It seems as if you'd prefer to do away with toggle buttons completely. This seems quite reasonable too.

@supercat The status+action approach works perfectly in your situation too. "Online [Go offline]" simply changes to "Going offline [Cancel]" while disconnection is in progress, then to "Offline [Go online]". I think your suggestion of switching status and action around during disconnection would lead to confusion.

comment Is there an optimal font size / line height ratio?
I tend to go for 1.4 for body text, perhaps that's because it's close to √2 = 1.4142135+. Other times I go for 1.5 because it seems neater.
