I am the least likely person I know to be taking on what I'm about to launch. I have a facebook page I've seen a total of twice in the past few years. I had never even heard the term "retweet" until today. Frankly, I still don't understand what Twitter is or why anyone would want to be subjected to someone else's constant chatter.
I am launching a site where social media sharing is the backbone of the entire concept. I suppose you could relate it to something like break.com, only with a specific niche focus.
So... the front page is full of teasers, and each teaser has social media sharing buttons. Each teaser leads to a permalink which has a video, some description, comments, voting, etc... and LOTS of buttons.
So here's where I'm gathering some perspective. There's limited space in each teaser, so I can only have a few buttons. I THINK what I want is tweet, like, and +1 button in each teaser. Frankly, I still don't know the difference between a tweet and a retweet button, but reading up...
For the actual video page, I figure I might as well have a crapload of buttons for whatever flavor of social bookmarking site or social media site fits the viewer. Mind you, I still don't know a social bookmark from a youtube channel, but "Ready, Fire, Aim" has always suited me., and I learn quickly.
So... looking for any perspective here on certain buttons, why they matter or don't, if I should change lineup in teasers, key points to pay attention to...
... and the answers to all those questions I'm currently to ignorant to even ask.
Sock it to me.

The social network share button in hubs is too small for people to notice.I feel that if it is made larger more people can like/share our hubs,given they like it.

I noticed tonight that the Flipboard share button is missing on all hubs. I checked a few niche sites and they are all missing. It doesn't matter if you're logged in or not. In addition, the problem I reported a few...

It's been pointed out on another thread that the voting buttons probably mean people are LESS likely to use the "share" buttons.Hubbers like to support other Hubbers and it's all too easy to hit the voting...

In an ironic twist, the Facebook like button (as well as the google+ button) do not appear to like the twitter button.Here is a pic: http://i.imgur.com/Z8VZC.pngUsing Firefox 8 for Ubuntu
