There are probably others, I haven't heard anything good or bad about
any of them (yet). But I think it depends on your site and your
audience. If most of your audience uses only 2 or 3 out of the dozens of
social networking sites out there, why not just have links for sharing
with those specific sites? Might be a good time to check your stats and
see how many incoming visits you get referred from social networking sites.
