What types of content get shared:
Our research identified five content types that have the potential to achieve both high numbers of shares and high numbers of domain links. These are:

- Strong opinion posts and political posts
- Content that provides original research and insights
- Content that leverages a trending topic but that also provides practical insights
- Authoritative news content on new products or developments
