I'm also using that "products per page" and "sort" code on the category views, and some may view 48/page etc. Unfortunately (as you know) next month I have to start thinning out the calls on the MySQL data to ease up on the RAM ... as it occasionally slows up the server and cause timing out errors.
I decided just to have the buttons on the category page at the top just because of the load issue as I use shared servers.
Theme owner was adamant that why they have not built social network buttons in for every page or post (load issue on server), even though plug-ins already exist for this.
So for datafeedr I just use the category buttons for now and wait and see how the use of them progresses. See below.
I have a plug-in for posts http://www.christsbooks.com/
that I am using on another site.
You can have the buttons show at the top or bottom of the post. Again I will watch to see if there are any issues and see how they are used.
If you wanted use something like that for post in Wp go to Install Plug-in in the search box use "Facebook Like and Send Button" and it will come up with some options.
