WebForms SocialShare Overview
RadSocialShare is a control that allows you to easily connect your site with the popular social networks or let the user send an e-mail with the link. It creates a centralized bar in which you can choose in which networks your users will be able to share the content. You are also allowed to make only a handful of the buttons visible initially and place the rest in a popup with a search box.
The Social Share is part of Telerik UI for ASP.NET AJAX, a

Easy customization of the content the user shares
The current page or custom URL
The developer can preset the title of the post the user will share, this overriding the page's title / URL
Two types of sharing buttons:
Styled buttons - by default provide consistent look, size and icons for the most popular features of the social networks, yet can be fully customized in terms of size, icon, text and tooltip
Standard buttons - they are rendered by the social networks themselves and provide their full functionality
Two buttons collections to fully customize the look and feel of the control
Main Buttons - these are always shown on the page and the social network is only a click away
Compact Buttons - If you do not want to overload the page with buttons deemed as rarely used you can leave the rest in a popup that gets opened via the RadCompactButton.
Visual Button Configurator that allows you toconfigure the button collections quickly and without writing a single line of code
Ability to send the URL as an e-mail
Via the default mail client from the user's machine, thus from the user's own account
Via a built-in mail form that sends the e-mail on behalf of the user from an address and server declared by the developer
Client-side events which allow you to thank the user or prevent multiple clicks
The popular Telerik skinning mechanism to match the rest of the site
