Marking which photo was shared/uploaded on social networks. With so many social networks and photo sharing services, it's very hard to keep track of which photo was shared on which online services. I would love to have a feature in Lightroom where I can manually mark on which social networks a photo was uploaded to. There are so many social networks and new appearing constantly, so I would like to have an option to add (and delete) social networks to the list and add myself a small logo of a social network. Once I mark a photo shared to XYZ service, a small logo of XYZ's service could show up somewhere.

You might develop your own scheme by using keywords. There wouldn't be any cute logos but you wouldn't have to wait for Adobe to add a logo for the social network you've just joined that doesn't have one.

Many social networks use keywords as tags as well so I would rather like to avoid it. Concerning your second point - that's why I suggest having a possibility to add new services & logos by users. There could be a list of services that I share my pictures, and then from a menu I choose to which services I've shared my photo to.

Most of these social networks have published services, so right click any photo and you can see which collections it's in.

what about services like Pixoto, Viewbug, G+? I understand it's impossible for Adobe to have publishing services for all of the services, therefore I'm suggesting to implement a way a user can mark himself/herself to which services a photo was uploaded (after exporting a photo from Lightroom). I also suggest, because of new services appearing every month, to implement a possibility for users to add new online services to the list.

There's a publish service for G+ and usually for any site of significance. If not, you can already add pictures to regular collections as you publish them, so you'd be able to right click any photo.
