Button Overload Is So Bad I Just Got Rid Of All The “Share” Buttons On My Site
The primary issue and what prompted me to write this article is website speed and load time. I just visited a highly popular social media blog and the page took forever to load. As I waited for the site to fully load, I could see in the status window of my browser that IE was loading, one by one, several different applications and buttons from Facebook, Buzz, Digg, and Twitter. By the time all of these buttons loaded, I had already found something else to do.
