"Bookmark this site" buttons.
Neither site was worth the time or effort in terms of traffic.
While I am not opposed to a "bookmark" button, keep in mind that not many people actually use the bookmarking function on their browsers these days. It is kind of a pre-2005 relic.
they can easily copy and paste the URL.
Right now you are giving the Facebook brand free advertising on your site, and are probably getting very little in return

social media buttons are almost certainly tracking and gather statistics about your traffic/users.

I have a script I'd like to install on your website so I can track your users.
Are there any hard stats on this?
We just use too many machines to access the internet. People need bookmarks that can carry from their phone to their tablet to their work PC to their home laptop.
If you're on the fence about keeping or removing social widgets consider your audience.I've never been on the fence about this. I will never have social widgets on my sites.
