If you write on a weblog for commercial purposes it’s of importance to make your content shareable through social networks like Facebook, Twitter and Delicious to name a few. Social media functionality is as unmissable as having a title for your weblog.
While having social media functionality is a must it must not be overdone. A lot of websites offer share options to all existing social networks, some I have never even heard off. I find that one of the most annoying things on weblog articles are the bazillion icons lining the post at the end or on the side.
It is best to think which social networks are more favorable for your kind of weblog and add those functionalities accordingly. Make sure the buttons won’t overflow in your design and that they are not a sore to the eye. For getting started you can’t go wrong with adding a Twitter, Facebook, StumbleUpon and Delicious button.
