The button to Tweet, Google Plus, or post on a Facebook newsfeed using Like is not set to show by default. These buttons can be added to a Gallery or Photo page. Photo pages may also include a Pin It button for Pinterest.

Please note, the steps for displaying the Social Media buttons will differ if you're using a Dynamic Thumbnails Grid.
