Put this code where you want to show the total share count:

<span>
<?php 
$obj=new shareCount(get_permalink( $post->ID ));  
echo $obj->get_tweets() + $obj->get_plusones() + $obj->get_fb() + $obj->get_stumble() + $obj->get_pinterest() + $obj->get_delicious() + $obj->get_linkedin();
?> Shares</span>
