I'm curious to see how many people use social network buttons. Some sites seem to think it's mandatory to throw these in your face for you to use them.

Do you ever use these buttons, or do you just think they are a nuisance?

Same for "I don't use social networks." Why do I need to pick something I don't use to vote?

Anyway, Add one to the "I don't use social networks" pile.

I have a custom script through greasemonkey and a subscription from ad-block plus to block all social networking buttons

I use them sometimes, but I usually just copy and paste the URL into Facebook, for some reason :s I imagine I'll be using the Share Charm in Windows 8, in future, though :)

Occasionally.

Usually it'll be to post a funny picture or something to facebook. Sometimes I'll share some stuff on twitter too.

Never, They track you and sell your browsing preferences to third parties and are generally a waste of space. Blocked them all.

Worst idea since context menu extentions

I use them seldom, but I've hardly ever used them on Neowin.

I'm not at all concerned about tracking or preferences. I welcome it. If companies can point me towards relevant things without me actually having to do anything then fine. Track me. :p

Ghostery blocks them.

Ghostery blocks them.

Same, and I also block the like buttons, because I will never use them.
