If you are not using Facebook already you should seriously think of. Facebook fan page or Facebook Recommend button is a great way to share and get more traffic. If you think it is not so important well let me tell you Facebook is the second most important website accessed after Google.
Adding a share button will not only get you more fans but also traffic. The concept is simple when a user likes your content and if you have the Facebook recommend option on your site they will most probably click it which will then appear on their Facebook news feed with a link to your site. In this way the friends of friends also get to see the link and they in turn can also share it.
