We all know that it’s not a bad thing to have your content shared — and to encourage that sharing — but just why should you attach social buttons directly to a video?
To be honest, it’s hard to think of many reasons why not to include social sharing buttons. In a social environment, like in a blog post, it’s a no-brainer. However, there may be other pages where you find that social buttons don’t work well with the aesthetic, and in that case, you may decide not to include them. Also, if you don’t want people sharing your video (tee hee).
