2013: A Year Worth Sharing [Infographic]

We have lots of traditions this time of year, and one of the most popular traditions we have is to take a look back at the year in social sharing. Even though 2013 lacked an Olympics or Presidential election we still saw social activity increase 32% across the web across our 14M websites and 1.5B unique users. We have seen the networks people share to change and the ways people share change over the years, but one thing is constant, our love of generating an infographic on the year’s top sharing trends.

    Interesting data. Surprising to see some of the usual suspects for popular sharing sites weren’t higher up on the list.
