Why do you share content? 🤔Let us know below!
1. To Entertain others
According to a study conducted by psychologists at UCLA, the primary reason people share is to entertain, inspire, and be useful to others. When we first consume a piece of content, one of the primary thoughts we have is, “Will others find this interesting?” We may not directly ask ourselves this question, but it’s something we subconsciously consider.
2. To Define Themselves
People love to be understood. We like for others to know where we stand on issues, personal convictions, interests, and dislikes. Often, we share content in order to define ourselves. Even more importantly, people share idealistic images of what they want to be.
3. To Stay Connected
Sometimes people share content to stay connected with friends and family members. This is what’s happening when people share content and then tag other people in the content. They’re reaching out to that individual and relaying some sort of message.
4. When They Feel An Emotion Connection
One of the more common reasons behind why people share is that they feel some sort of emotional connection. Everyone has their own emotional triggers, but the average person feels inclined to share a piece of content when they feel anger, shock, awe, humor, sadness, etc.
