Facebook and Twitter integration (Google Plus?) revisit.

It seems that after a few module updates, I am no longer receiving the Share to Facebook function when updating stories and blog postings is no longer available. I see that the code is in the modules contributed examples, but not fully integrated. Also the examples enable too many features that I actually don't want or have found a different/better looking way to provide them. Such as the [LIKE] button.

I prefer the way the simple like/counter button works, and when using the Topsy and Google +1 buttons next to it, it fits much better with the flow of the site.
I think I have a new module written to work with Facebook and request to post automatically. I don't currently see the option below. If this works, the next step would be to create a module to do the same function to Google Plus (maybe).
