The benefit of placing the buttons yourself is ultimate control. I know from personal experience though that it can be a pain to bring all of the code together and make it work.

The big benefit of using a service is that the code is done for you and you sometimes get extras as well. The downside is lock-in. If you ever want to leave, you'll lose any data stored specifically with that service. That being said, if you like what AddThis or ShareThis offers and are okay with the user interface options they offer, it's simpler and easier to just use a service.

well, do you know where can i find some code already halfway done.
ShareThis will walk you through the process and give you the code starting with http://www.sharethis.com/get-sharing-tools/

The individuals social networks each have their own wizard to get the code depending on the options you want. The issue I had was that the CSS they add to their buttons didn't work well with my design.

Given that there are so many options, it probably would be easier and more beneficial to choose which option you want and then get help with the specific code.
