But, Floating Social bar plugin uses very less scripts by showing fake button with real count to the users until a user takes the mouse pointer to socialbar plugin for sharing.

It also sticks to side or top of the screen as the user scroll down which results in maximize the social shares of your blog. Other alternatives to floating social bar plugins are DigDig and flare.
