Google+: 3,479
Facebook: 3,215

Twitter: 401 (Keep in mind I have more than 200,000 followers)
allthingsd: 340
Hacker News: 226 (didn't get onto home page, if it does, this usually goes up to more than 10,000)
Techmeme: 219 (wasn't on the home page, if it does, usually goes up to about 3,000)
Google: 205
