Hi All,

I am looking for good and bad examples of how sites encourage users to share content whether that be by email or share buttons or other means.  I notice some sites are including a lot of buttons which I think negatively impacts the user experience for the sake of SEO.  Do you know of any bad examples or really good examples?  

Apologies if this has been discussed already but I couldnt find anything using the Search.
