Q.  How do I get social media buttons for my website?

A.  I could give exact code but its likely to change so here are
links to where to get it.

Facebook Like Button
http://developers.facebook.com/docs/reference/plugins/like

Twitter Tweet Button
http://twitter.com/about/resources/tweetbutton

A general button
http://www.addthis.com

Troubleshooting...

The user needs to be logged into the relevant social network before
coming to your site (for the button to be enabled).

If Facebook button doesn't appear, check whether the popular
"Facebook blocker" Add-On is installed.

If the button appears but doesn't work ensure the Firefox option
"accept third party cookies" is enabled enabled.

Personally, I don't care for these buttons so have Facebook blocker installed.
