Another question someone posted got me thinking, what are the social media integration solutions that everyone uses? The most common solutions I've come across are the content-sharing buttons:
How many of you use these or other social media integration solutions? Or do you just create your own sharing buttons? What advantages are there to using these 3rd-party solutions versus creating your own buttons using Facebook/Del.icio.us/Digg/etc.'s code?
Another solution I've been coming across more and more, and that I really dislike, are those fixed social media toolbars that many sites put at the bottom of your screen. They stick out like a sore thumb and take up valuable screen real-estate and just look very tacky IMO. How many people use those, and what advantage do you see to using those branded social sharing toolbars?
Are there any other solutions out there that you guys would recommend?
