Sorry about that.  We've been working on this on the marketing list
for around a month.  A new volunteer prototyped 4 variations of the
page, with different placement and wording for the "sharing" links.
We then did a controlled experiment using Google Analytics to see
which variation yielded the most shares.  That test ran for 2 weeks
and the patch you see was to put the winning design into production.

Since not everyone is on the marketing list, in the future we should
update the dev list on what we are proposing before implementing it.
Me bad.

It is new.

We should get around 100 shares per day.   If each person has maybe 50
people in the social network (on average) then that is 5,000 extra
people who may hear about AOO each day.  And since they are hearing an
endorsement from someone they know, the effect can be quite powerful.
