It’s clear that people like to share funny or entertaining content on Facebook, but what are the reasons that they share what they share? Content marketing agency Fractl has the answer after surveying over 2,000 Facebook users to find out what motivates them to share things on the biggest social network.

So, the main reason that people shared things on Facebook is to entertain people – 48% said they shared things that others will find interesting. 17% of respondents said they share things that inform their friends about what they are interested in.
