Lightest social media plugins? (2 posts)

    I'd like to add a social media plugin that will allow people to post my posts to social media, retweet posts, and enable Facebook Like.

    Problem is, some social media plugins add an incredible amount of code bloat to a blog, while also greatly multiplying DNS lookups and other speed detriments.

    Anyone have any recommendations for social media plugins that are truly lightweight?
