Share buttons are a great way to drive more traffic to a website. Unfortunately, most share buttons social networks provide are ugly and may even require loading of external scripts. Yuck.


Social media share buttons can be easily added to any website. The buttons make it simple for users to share the page, and display the number of times people have shared that page. This might make it seem like a no-brainer to include on every website you design, but these buttons come at a cost to performance.
