  14. Roy says:

    I use the Tweet, Like, Google+1 and Share plugin – has just 5 social icons although you can add further custom buttons like StumbleUpon.

    If experimenting with new social media plugins I’d recommend Social Metrics – it’s a reporting plugin which tracks how many times your posts have been shared across the most popular social networks – so it’s easy to see which networks are working for you and which aren’t
