We are thinking of adding a few select ‘add this link to...’ type buttons on our site. But we are trying to work out the criteria for which ones we choose.

It’s an informational/research ‘establishment' resource website and so we don’t want to ‘cheapen’ the site by using one of those services that adds 100s of social networking icons that our users would never dream of using.

Any suggestions?

There are a number of email-a-link scripts that can be used. As far as social networking chiclets, AddThis can be customized to limit what buttons are shown, such as print a page, email a link, twitter, facebook etc. As few as you need. The good thing about AddThis is that it comes with analytics.

Thanks. Yep I know Addthis. Its not technical issues that i need help with. I perhaps wasn't very clear. What I'm interested in is what other people thought were more... reputable, serious, academic focused link sharing/networking tools to link to. We will probably go with Google+ and Twitter. Who else?
