I am looking for good and bad examples of how sites encourage users to share content whether that be by email or share buttons or other means. I notice some sites are including a lot of buttons which I think negatively impacts the user experience for the sake of SEO. Do you know of any bad examples or really good examples?
Apologies if this has been discussed already but I couldnt find anything using the Search.

In a recent usability study, when I asked participants to share some info with their friends, some people clicked the Share button on the page, but some people copied the URL out of the address field in the browser and e-mailed it to their friend. Since this behavior is impossible to capture via analytics, I'm wondering how widespread this behavior might be? Have you observed this (copy URL) behavior in your own usability studies? If so, how often did it happen? I'm wondering if it's a small minority (10%) behavior or a majority (50%+) behavior?
