Who We Share on Facebook
On Tuesday Facebook released a 2011 top 40 list of the its most shared articles in the United States.
Coming in at number 1: Satellite Photos of Japan, Before and After the Quake and Tsunami from the New York Times.
Rounding out the list at number 40: Steve Jobs’s Patents, also from the New York Times.
In between are articles and videos such as Laughing Baby Loves Ripping Paper! (at number 30 from Yahoo) and Parents, don’t dress your girls like tramps (at number 4 from CNN).
While the sample size is small, we thought looking at percentage shares by company would be interesting.  It’s not much of a surprise that familiar names dominate the list but we’ll dig around and see if we can get a larger sample and see what that might hold.
