It would be good to get some stats on usage of social media buttons on Gov services. From past experience and reading online articles they don't seem to be used that often to warrant them being present on the page.

Also interested in the use of social share links on NHS and Government service. Especially at the end of services, such as registering to vote on GOV.UK
