If you look on Google you will find ton of examples of services that enable you to create social sharing links like: sharingbuttons.io or AddToAny

The problem

Using these kind of services will add these problems:

  1. Ton of Requests to your network to load remote Javascript code, styles or images like AddToAny
  2. Even if done minimally like sharingbuttons.io they still add ton of Styles and Weight to a section you might want to keep as light as possible.

Is there a better alternative without dependencies or icons?

If you want to have the different links here you will find all the possible links of the most famous social networks, to copy and edit with the simplest sharing URL formats.

Just remember to replace TITLE_PAGE and URL_PAGE.
