What HTML code do I need to include on my webpages if I want visitors to share the URL or links to their friends on a social network like Facebook or a web service like Tumblr?

I want the text to read something like:

Share with Facebook or Tumblr

Is there a web app or service that I can use that will include the popular options instead of having to know which service or social network I want to offer a share link to?

There are a lot of widgets with such sharing mechanisms, e.g. take a look at this.
Just google for sharing social bookmarks...
