I’m all for the concept of orbital content, but the last couple of days we’ve got another Twitter button and the long awaited Google +1. Enough is enough.
There are now more sharing buttons than you can shake a mouse at or so it seems. It’s not that difficult to share content but for the love of god, before you add in yet more buttons at least make sure you’ve got at least as much content as you have buttons.
Some sites even duplicate the functionality so you can actually use a different widget, just below the other widget to do the same thing!
People can share, I know the buttons make it easier but can you please take a second to consider how many you need and if you can actually do anything with them.
Please share this…..
