And the results are even worse if you don't throw the option into the arena and announce it.
I've got a highly popular redwood page that gets so many page views per month, it pays for my redwood fuel and lodging to northern California about every 6 weeks. But when it came to putting a Facebook or +1 button on it, it barely registered even after a few weeks. A lot of this gimmick stuff is good for Google and a limited few it seems.
You basically proved the inefficiency of it it seems.
Can't really hurt anything though if it's not wasting space. Somebody's going to click someday.
