Resolve performance issues encountered with social widgets

Have you ever noticed how slow become your pages as soon as you want to integrate a Facebook like button or other social widgets from Twitter, LinkedIn and so on?

Even if most of them offer async loading snippet codes now, it still makes the browser's throbber beeing displayed for longer.
And one knows that how long the browser's throbber is beeing displayed at the first load of a page is very important as it's the only real indicator for end-users.
