The same report also finds, however, that only half of the web's top 10,000 sites have added a social sharing button from Facebook, Twitter, Google+, or LinkedIn to their homepage.

After evaluating those 10,000 sites, about 53.6% display "some social links or buttons" on their front pages, a slight increase from 52.8 percent in late July. Breaking it down further:

50.3 percent have adopted a Facebook Like/Recommend button.
42.5 percent have adopted a Twitter Tweet button.
8.1 percent have added a Google +1 button.
4 percent have added a LinkedIn Share button.
