This website for instance uses an expandable share button, which saves on space: See red box "+ Delen".
I'm speaking for myself when I say that I would gratefully use that feature, but I reckon I'm not the only one.
Just an idea...
Didn't had much time to do it but i ended up with a small naughty code: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZJHiD1UDuew, it requires a lot of time to be improved and adapted to the SL interface!
Please don't play with the issue queue, nothing has been fixed yet.
TheCrow: any code on that example?
