The team at Fractl conducted a survey of 2,000 Facebook users and asked them about what they share on Facebook and why. And this infographic illustrates what they found:
“When survey respondents were asked about their primary motivation for sharing content on Facebook, the most popular reason (at 48 percent) was to entertain their friends. A slightly smaller group of respondents (17 percent) wanted to express the issues they cared about. In third place is evoking an emotional response (13 percent). In fourth: providing useful information (11 percent).”
