    Which social icons does your blog display?

    In other words: which social networks are worth being considered? The project I'm working on will speak to people interested in CSS, HTML and PHP.

    Twitter seems to be a must.
    Facebook doesn't seem relevant.

    What about others?

    Google Plus is the new kid on the block, so worth considering.

    It's somewhat amusing that you deem a site that has over 800 million users as not relevant. What exactly is your relevancy criteria?

    Google +1
    Linkedin (if related to business)
    ...got to agree with Shyflowers post. Why not Facebook? Whether you like it or not, it's big and its popular.

    The question isn't about plugins, rehglant asked what Social Networking sites you consider relevant. Please don't deviate from the original topic in your replies.

    Facebook and twitter are the obvious big boys. Google plus is definitely worth having especially if you rely heavily on your site ranking high in google which most people do. My guess would be Digg is next in line, but that's just a personal preference.

    Hi,

    I'm afraid I disagree, the coding community do use Facebook (who else wrote all those apps?)
    I'd say that the networks to have Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin and Google+
    I personally don't like Facebook, or Twitter, but wouldn't exclude them from 'share' buttons.

    The most relevant for you I guess are Twitter, LinkedIn and social bookmarking sites. I personally use Twitter, FB and Google+. All in all, the social media buttons you display should match the sites you are most active on.
