I've noticed on occasion after posting an answer I get the "Share your Answer!" bar with Facebook/twitter icons. Does this bar only show up when I first post an answer? I can't seem to find those options deliberately, and other some SE sites don't even seem to have them.

This only appears:

  • a random percent of the time, decreasing chance with greater reputation
  • on your posts
  • if they are greater than 400 characters in length
  • for 1 hour after posting

Please ditch all of the share icons - they give me nightmares
