Webmasters Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for pro webmasters. It's 100% free, no registration required.

If I'm already using AddThis (Layers) to provide my visitors with the ability to share my pages and follow my social media handles is there any reason why I might also want to add a Google Plus or Facebook Like button to my page?

I feel that there are three methods for me to provide social media exposure to my pages: (1) Share (2) Follow - this is really following my social media account and not promoting a particular page, and (3) Voting - allow visitors to Plus/Like a page.

I'm wondering if the 3rd option is redundant or provides value.
