I haven't worked that much with flash, but shared objects are practically the same thing as cookies, but I believe that the data types are stored as well as the values. Cookies only store strings. Most browsers don't manage flash shared objects, so deleting cookies won't delete the shared object.

 

The only site I've verified uses shared objects is this one: http://microsite.nintendo-europe.com/Zelda-TwilightPrincess/enGB/

Probably many websites do, but I'm never really looking for it.

Local shared objects, sometimes referred to as "Flash cookies," are data files that can be created on your computer by the sites you visit. Shared objects are most often used to enhance your web-browsing experience.
