So everyone can not only vote up, but +1 [google plus], like [facebook], and tweet the questions/answers/posts of interest also?

I don't use social networks, but here is my thought on this matter.

For me, the main question is the one on privacy, data sharing, licenses and overall freedom. It is one of the reasons why I am so reluctant to use social networks. To make it simple, BioStar's content is (since the Biostar.org migration) licensed under Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License. But, the information from the +1 (google) and +1 (facebook) would belong to those two companies, right? Does this mean that some of BioStar's content would be under a different license? And if so, to what extent?

I have never thought about this issue... And honestly, I have no clue:/ Anyone has any experience with that?

Well, the questions are tweeted. If you follow BioStarQuestion https://twitter.com/BioStarQuestion it would be easy to re-tweet those you like.

We blog about one question each week and it drives some traffic over. And I have highlighted questions on Google+. I'm not on facebook so I can't speak to what people might have done with that.

I don't miss the quick button for things like that, because I prefer to write my own headers and ledes and stuff for that kind of thing anyway.
