  2. How do i put someone elses button on my blog?

    Copy and paste the image code provided by the other blogger into a text widget and display it in your sidebar. http://en.support.wordpress.com/widgets/text-widget/

    Also how do i put buttons on my blog for pinterest and facebook?

    You can use any widget that has pure HTML but you cannot use any widgets that contain restricted codes like iframes or JavaScript widgets. In the case of Pinterest, you cannot use the Pin-it Javascript code on a WordPress.com blog. http://en.support.wordpress.com/code/

    But you can put the code for the Pinterest follow button in a text widget.
    1. Go to this site, choose which one of the red Follow Me images you want, and copy the code for it. http://pinterest.com/about/goodies/

    2. Then, go to your widgets > Appearance > Widgets and select a text widget.http://en.support.wordpress.com/widgets/text-widget/

    3. Paste the Pinterest follow button code into the text widget, "save" the widget, "close" the widget and place it where you want it to display in your sidebar.

    4. Please see here for enabling sharing buttons including Pinterest and Facebook on your blog. http://en.support.wordpress.com/sharing/

    The Facebook like box widget we have here at WordPress.com will only accept Facebook page URLs. It will not accept profile URLs.
    Please see here for Facebook integration as you will find there is a Facebook badge you may want to use. http://en.support.wordpress.com/facebook-integration/
