I have a few websites designed to sell certain types of products.I'm thinking about developing a "tell a friend" widget on the product page, but I'm not sure how many people will actually use it...Do you think it's worth the time?

The question isn't really how many people would use it, total. The question is how many people would use a widget who would not otherwise mention your site on their own initiative, whether in direct email ("You said you were looking for a place to buy small purple widgets") or by posting to social media ("Let me take a moment to sing the praises of smallpurplewidgets dot com").
People who want to recommend a page on facebook certainly don't seem to have any trouble doing so without further hand-holding from me.
