Pop-Up Blocking Policies: Opening multiple tabs allowed?

The idea:
For my implementation of a social sharing UI, users first chose a few social networks (FB, Twitter, Google) and then by clicking on a “Share” button, all share links would open at once.

The problem: I am afraid browsers will block the new tabs as they may suspect they are spam. I searched for what the different pop-up blocking policies are for browsers, but haven’t found any good or offical source.

The question: Does anyone knows what the pop-up blocking behaviours across different browsers are for opening multiple links at once? And also if the example code would trigger them?

$(".shareNow a").on("click", function (event) {
    event.preventDefault();
    window.open("http://www.google.com/share");
    window.open("http://www.twitter.com/share");
    window.open("http://www.fb.com/share");
});
