Should social sharing buttons be moved?

I just added a linkedin button below the twitter/facebook buttons. Combined with the g+ button, it's starting to clutter - maybe it would be better to move the buttons to a different place? Or have them show on demand?

Maybe there is a way to improve the widget to make it use space more efficiently? How about allowing site owners select which sharing tools to enable?

The problem if you move the buttons elsewhere they will be used less often, the spot on the left top is the best and a tenth of a square inch for those buttons is a good use of space.

yeah, I agree. problem is there are really so many sharing sites available :) I ended up doing what you suggest by changing the "enable social sharing" to providing an option to enable each individually.
