Hi, maybe my reply is a bit outdated, but this social driving tile also drove me crazy, and I rencently turned it off.
Here is my work around:
In "Settings > Advanced" turn off the first option that should read like "Show map control via finger tip" or similar (I don't have English language running, so my translation is a guess).
The good news is: that annoying tile is gone. The bad news: now the zoom buttons are constantly shown in the screen. As I use the zoom from time to time but not the "drive social button" I am ok with this work around.
Hope it helps, cheers
