Social media has really taken off in recent years. Few major blogs don’t have some sort of widget or icon on permalink pages to promote Digging, Stumbling, or whatever. Many blogs go nuts and have 26 different social bookmarking icons in a row beneath posts. Talk about clutter.
I like the big icons. The size makes it easier to find the icon you’re looking for, rather than wade through a list of tiny favicon-sized images.
iBegin Share is available in both a standalone version, and as a WordPress plugin.
